The Mental Health and Wellbeing project supports ethnic minority individuals in the Forth Valley who experience reduced mental wellbeing to help them lead healthier, happier, and fulfilling lives. This project is funded by Comic Relief via the Global Majority Fund and is managed by the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER). The money raised by Comic Relief supports charities and projects in the UK and around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone’s mental health and was felt particularly among ethnic minorities, considering the impact of cultural differences, low levels of confidence in the health services, and the difficulties in accessing services due to language barriers. We aim to support ethnic minorities by designing and developing a programme of activities to help improve their mental health and wellbeing, thus leading to an improved quality of life.
Our Project helps to address mental health issues and improve the mental health of ethnic minority communities through a varied programme of activities as well as by enabling access to specialist mental health professionals with interpreting services.
Our programme of activities aims to encourage as many people as possible to be more active and to integrate further in their local communities and the wider society.
