Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Groups

B&NES Primary Care Talking Therapies offers support to a wide range of people with a very diverse range of needs. People’s experiences of mental health problems are unique to their set of circumstances and different groups of people have different experiences of mental health problems that reflect their culture and context. People can face societal challenges that can affect access to healthcare and overall mental and physical health. With this in mind we would like to signpost to the following resources.

If you have struggled to access appropriate mental health support, we would like to address this in any way we can. For example, if language is a barrier for accessing support, we are able to work with an interpreter service.
