Croydon BME Forum feature in Guided by you – Healthwatch Croydon Annual report.
Find us on page 14 discussing what well-being means to BAME residents to support creation of our new Wellness Centre in Croydon.
“The Croydon BME Forum was excited to collaborate with Healthwatch Croydon on this project.
This research was needed due to the overrepresentation of the BME community members in crisis and acute mental health settings.
In 2018, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust reported that BME population in Croydon made up 56.1% of their caseload on acute wards.
The feedback from this research is being used so that we can deliver a BME wellness centre that supports the adult community in attending to and learning about their wellbeing.”
