Black Minds Matter BMM

In the UK, discrimination and inequality impacts on black communities throughout their lives.  From being more likely to be excluded from schools, and stop and searched by the police, to being more likely to be in the lowest  paid jobs, living in the poorest homes, to being over represented in mental health services.

In 2018, we established Black Minds Matter. We did this to change the narrative about black communities, and to celebrate their lives, their ambitions and their dreams. Black Minds Matter.  Our work has included providing mentors for young people to guide them towards the careers they would like, culturally-adapted early intervention and prevention work in schools, youth clubs and faith groups, and supporting them to access mental health support and well being services.

At this time of unprecedented change, we would welcome your support and solidarity.

Your donations would enable us to:
- Grow our coproduction work with schools, youth clubs and faith groups in Wandsworth, London
- Support these organisations to develop better, culturally-appropriate mental health early intervention and prevention pathways
- Develop young leaders to RISE and supporting them to LIFT those in their communities

- 'As we RISE, we LIFT' - 

You can find out more about the work that we do, and about the young people that we support by visiting our Black Minds Matter website   and our Instagram Page, Facebook Page  and Twitter.  Please click here  to go to Mixcloud to listen to our Podcast series.
