NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) held their Mental Health Trusts Communications Network meeting last week, where they shared details of the new Advancing Mental Health Equalities Strategy which sets out the actions we will take to bridge the gaps for communities fairing worse than others in mental health services.

To coincide with the strategy, NHSE/I are holding two webinars for patients and carers of mental health services on Improving Black, Asian and minority ethnic community experiences of mental health services to discuss ways to improve experiences and outcomes of care for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) patients and carers in mental health services. This will help inform the development of the Patient and Carers Race Equality Framework (PCREF), which was one of the key recommendations of the Independent Review of the Mental Health Act agreed by the government.

The webinars will take place at the following times:
