The Cultural Advocacy Project aims to support community groups and organisations to promote wellbeing and support individuals and families to look after their mental health.
This support is coproduced with community members so it is reflective of specific cultural needs. Each organisation is offered tailor made training and consultancy to help establish groups and events which can best achieve these aims.
We aim to
Help reduce the sense of isolation experienced by BAME community members struggling with their mental health.
Help improve levels of wellbeing and self-confidence of people experiencing distress, taking into consideration their specific cultural needs.
Help enable individuals to access support services in a timely way and work alongside community groups and mainstream providers to ensure these services are inclusive and support cultural needs.
Along with community organisations, we have set up Peer Support Groups for members of the community to connect with people from their cultural background who have similar experiences. These free supportive networks are warm and encouraging spaces, enabling members to be around like minded people and safely ask questions, learn skills and share experiences.
