The team at the Men & Boys Coalition have asked us to pass on details of their webinar this Friday on black men’s mental health. It looks excellent and we are happy to do so!

Black men are 17 times more likely than white men to be diagnosed with a serious mental health illness and they are sectioned or experience a mental health intervention more than any other group in the UK.

Despite this, they are less likely to access services than men in general and face particular barriers to seeking help when they do. What are the issues that underpin these statistics and how can we improve mental health support for black men?

The talk will be followed by a Q&A and discussion. Hope to see you there and please share with your networks. The fantastic speakers joining us to discuss these urgent issues are:

  • Lee Townsend, Photographer, mental health campaigner and Engagement Consultant at Off The Record
  • Jay Perkins, Child, Adolescent and Family Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, Founder and Company Director, Partisan
  • Kevin Brazant, Award winning youth worker, researcher and lecturer in social work at London Metropolitan University
  • Tambo Silavwe, DEI expert and co-founder of MentalityLive
