Mental Health & BAMER communities

 

NHS Liverpool CCG currently funds a Community Development Service. This aims to support Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) communities to get the right support for mental distress - this includes problems with moods or thoughts that affect how people cope with everyday life, help in a crisis and an advocate providing one-to-one support.

We know many people from BAMER communities have different experiences of care for mental distress and we want to improve mental health support.

We want to:

  • make sure the Liverpool Community Development Service is working on the right things
  • hear experiences of people from Liverpool’s BAMER communities

If you are part of a BAMER community, please tell us what you think about these issues using our online survey here.

If you're a local Voluntary, Community or Social Enterprise organisation please tell us about your views using this survey.

The surveys close on 28 April 2019.

We will then analyse the feedback and use it to reshape the support LCDS provide.

We are also planning on further conversations about this issue later in the year.
