Mental Health and Wellbeing Briefing Paper

We have just published our Mental Health and Wellbeing Briefing Paper. The brief is by Raghu Raghavan and Jessica Jones Nielsen. It examines how Covid-19 has impacted on the mental health and wellbeing of black, Asian and minority ethnic people who research has already identified disparities in their experiences of mental health services and outcomes.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on Black and ethnic minority communities, who have experienced higher levels of anxiety and depression rates than the white population.”

The full brief is available here.

This work is part of our Race Equity Collaboratives project which is a set of collaborations created to develop an evidence-led narrative and make practical recommendations to better ensure that the recovery phase from COVID-19 in the UK addresses racial inequity.  You can find more information on the project here.
