What? Mental Health Reform (MHR), in partnership with the Mental Health Commission, is launching its guidelines for mental health services and staff on working with people from ethnic minority communities. The guidelines are rooted in MHR’s policy position on ethnic minorities and mental health, [link to the report can be found below] which was developed on the basis of an international literature review and wide consultation with representatives from a number of ethnic minority groups, in addition to MHR’s Multi-Disciplinary and Ethnic Minorities Advisory Groups.
