Baring Foundation New Fund for Creativity Mental Health & People from Ethnically Diverse Backgrounds

Baring Foundation Arts programme is today launching a new fund for projects that promote the role of creativity in the lives of people with mental health problems from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

Their research so far suggests that there are few diverse-led organisations specifically devoted to arts and health work and that ethnically diverse people are not well represented as service-users or in its workforce. That is despite the fact that there are stark disparities in terms of prompt diagnosis and access to mental health treatment for racialised communities.

This funding round is being launched together with our new report – Creatively Minded and Ethnically Diverse – in which experts and practitioners with personal and professional experience explore the challenges and barriers in this field and draw out good practice. https://baringfoundation.org.uk/news-story/new-funding-for-creativity-mental-health-and-people-from-ethnically-diverse-backgrounds/?fbclid=IwAR0KVH33c1H5pQCrwGjeegTSKFW90t0OQ8E4W1kyHYuBxChskTqC-YMEaSU
