Public Health England Second Phase Initiative: North West and North East England, Yorkshire and the Humber

October 29 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

This webinar series will serve as a second phase initiative which aims to further explore and expand on recommendations from the first phase project in which interviews were conducted with a handful of black, Asian and minority ethnic people in receipt of PHBs through s117 aftercare. Through these interviews, recommendations for how PHBs could be implemented to improve the experience of mental health services for BAME people were identified and published in the ‘Expanding Horizons of the s117 in mental health’ report produced by the Foundation. 

s117 PHB Project Overview
It is widely known that people from black and minority ethnic
backgrounds generally experience poorer health outcomes than their
white counterparts due to systemic inequalities in health care services.
In January 2020, the Race Equality Foundation, in collaboration with
NSUN and NHS England and NHS Improvement started Phase 1 of a
project where we spoke to a small group of people from Black
African/Caribbean backgrounds who have PHBs. The key themes from
these discussions were in line with and provided context for factors
perpetuating health inequalities and these were presented along with
evidence from existing literature in a report published in April 2020.

Purpose of the webinars
Phase 2 of this work will entail a series of focus groups and interviews
with budget holders and of six regional webinars across the entire NHS
England remit which aim to equip commissioners and other key
stakeholders with knowledge and understanding of how to address
health inequalities in order to better implement PHBs. This work will
build on the findings and recommendations of Phase 1 of this project,
with a specific focus on understanding VCSE sector and NHS CCG
collaborations for cultural brokerage, personal empowerment in mental
health recovery, in addition to the impact of racism and discrimination in
mental health care.
