Title Fit for Partnership Briefing Session: Croydon's Black Community Reimagining Mental Health
Description

The Patient and Carer Race Equality Framework (PCREF) is a new way of working which brings together Black communities, Black service users and their carers with SLaM staff. Together we will re-imagine mental health services to achieve anti-racism and equity for Black citizens.

Data shows that diverse communities have poorer Access, Experience and Outcomes (AEO) in mental health services – this is true of SLaM and national data. In this first iteration of PCREF, we are focusing on improving AEO for Black African, Black Caribbean and Black Other (including Mixed) communities. This is because SLaM data shows that these groups are most disadvantaged in our care.
