The Inside Out of: BLACK MENTAL HEALTH
Inside Out October Well-being Event
Time & Location
08 Oct 2020, 18:00 – 20:00
About The Event
We cannot deny any longer that there is a Black Mental Health Crisis in the UK.
There is a huge body of evidence that tells us Black Men are 10 times more likely to experience mental health issues than any other groups of men and Black women are more likely to have a common mental health disorder than their white counterparts (DHSC, 2018). Researchers have found that African and Caribbean people in the UK are three to five times more likely to be diagnosed and admitted to hospital for severe mental health difficulties, more than any other group however have lower rates of diagnosis for other common mental disorders (Mental Health Foundation, 2016).
We know that there are multiple factors that contribute towards this and with all the information out there it can lead to to feelings of overwhelm and confusion.
We have teamed up with The Hidden Science Academy to bring you clarity to this important topic.
In this event we will be discussing:
- What does Biochemistry tells us about the disproportionate rates of mental health problems for Black people in the UK?
- What role does Melanin play in Mental Health?
- What are the practical steps to improve Black Mental Health using Holistic Health?
This event will be facilitated by our guest workshop facilitator:
