Mental health: ethnic minority experiences


In this section you can find out about ethnic minority (BME) experiences of mental health by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 30 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as diagnosis, therapy and support from family and friends. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
Interviews in other languages: Bengali (Reena); Cantonese (Sarah, H.Y. Leung); Punjabi (Raj). You can start viewing topics by clicking 'Next Topic' above, or selecting from the list on the left. You can also view 'People's Profiles' from the tab above.
