Mental Health Survey for Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Communities

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust are seeking the views of people of ethnic minority backgrounds on what mental health means to them, what their perception/experience of mental health services are, and what barriers there might be contacting/using MH services.

For many years there has been a higher incidence in the use of the Mental Health Act, nationally, involving people from a BAME background. There have been various national studies and reports over the years, the most recent being via the review of the Mental Health Act by Sir Simon Wessely and from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust have commenced a project to understand local rates of the use of the Mental Health Act and how these rates compare with the national rates.

As mental health professionals they want to understand what our communities experience have been and where they have not had experience, what their perception is of the local mental health services.

This information will be used to help the project understand local rates and if any changes are required to the provision of services

Please take some time to help them gather evidence which will help them to improve their service for BAME people.

The survey can be completed online at:
