About the Company

BMHS is a not-for-profit organisation focused on education and advocacy to inspire a mentally healthy BAME community by providing support appropriate to their mental health and wellbeing.


We believe that mental health and physical health should be valued equally. Sadly, institutional apathy, structural inequalities, racism, fear, stigma, and discrimination means that Black Asian and Minority Ethnic people are disadvantaged when it comes to accessing mental health and wellbeing services, and to the quality of care they can receive. ​Structural discrimination refers to policies and practices within institutions that are intended to be neutral, but which result in adverse outcomes for particular groups.
