In 2017/2018, black men were four times more likely to be detained under the Mental Health Act than their white counterparts. The risk of psychosis in the black Caribbean population is estimated to be nearly seven times higher than in the white population. These inequalities may be the result of many connected factors, including racism, economic inequality and poverty, and mental health stigma, and should be of concern to any practitioner working in the mental health system. This session will explore the inequalities that exist for black, Asian and ethnic people accessing the mental health system – particularly black African and Caribbean men and will present findings from a study to explore black men’s perspectives on mental health recovery.
