Bangladeshi Mental Health Forum

The Bangladeshi Mental Health Forum (BMHF) raises awareness of mental health within the Bangladeshi community, and other BME groups such as Somali, new migrants and hard to reach communities. To do this our work includes organising mental health awareness events and workshops; campaigning for better accessibility to mental health services; and highlighting the concerns of families, carers of service users and the community to commissioners and service providers.

Santé Refugee Mental Health Access Project

Our vision is for refugees and asylum seekers to have the freedom and opportunity to lead independent lives in a community, and our mission is to support refugees and asylum seekers in the London region, particularly those with mental health issues, to gain equal access to health and other essential services. We offer one-to-one befriending and advocacy, helping service users access services, integrate into the community and seek asylum. Many service users become volunteers.

Mental Health Champions

Mental Health Champions are community workers or volunteers who aim to increase mental health awareness among Black, minority ethnic and refugee (BMER) groups.

They are often of a similar background or culture to the communities they work with.  

Champions help to break down stigma and ignorance surrounding mental health issues by talking about mental health; delivering information, advice and guidance; raising awareness and knowledge of services through various activities including workshops, discussions and role plays.

Studio Upstairs

Studio Upstairs provides a place for people to express their talents through the arts who, for reasons of mental health difficulties or emotional distress, choose not to participate in traditional arts institutions. Providing artistic resources and education within a therapeutic community setting, we challenge the stigma and prejudice projected onto those experiencing mental and emotional distress.

We currently offer memberships to our 'community art group', 'performance group' and our 'therapeutic art groups' at the studio. Please find more details on our website.
