HEAR US OPEN MEETING – WE WOULD VALUE YOUR INPUT AT THIS VERY IMPORTANT MEETING IF YOU CAN.Posted: May 29, 2013
Hear Us would be delighted if you were able to come along and find out more about the issues affecting people who struggle with mental health issues from BME communities, or give us your views/experiences on this subject.
As you are aware, Croydon is a hugely diverse Borough, and there are a large number of people from BME communities struggling with mental health issues and a disproportionality small number who access services –
WE NEED TO KNOW WHY
SO IF YOU ARE A SERVICE USER FROM A BLACK AND MINORITY ETHNIC COMMUNITY OR YOU CARE FOR OR HELP SUPPORT PEOPLE IN THIS GROUP – WE WANT YOU TO SUPPORT THIS MEETING.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY MENTAL HEALTH STIGMA OR CARE FOR SOMEONE/SUPPORT SOMEONE WHO HAS – WE WANT YOU TO SUPPORT THIS MEETING
WE HOPE THAT THE CARRIBEAN LUNCH WILL HELP YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US!
If you are unable to attend, but are able to advertise the poster to your colleagues, friends, clients, patient and anyone with an interest in mental health (and challenging mental health discrimination/stigma) we would be really grateful
1pm, JUNE 4TH at the CVA West Croydon (opposite Lidl – 82 London Road, CR0 2TB)
PS. HARD COPIES OF THE ‘MIND THE GAP’ REPORT available at this meeting
