We're looking for students from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds who want to be part of our paid action groups, working to create initiatives that reduce the barriers faced by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Students when accessing mental health support at Coventry University. Read on to find out more and take part!
Last year, staff and students at Coventry University Students Union, worked alongside the University to secure funding from the Office for Students (OfS) to create a project which aims to reduce the barriers faced by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students when accessing mental health support.
We know that people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds are more likely to experience inequalities within the UK mental health system and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students consistently face barriers in terms of accessing culturally appropriate services including a lack of cultural understanding amongst staff within those services. We know this has to change.
We are launching a number of action groups in order to hear the experience of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students at Coventry University. You feedback will help shape the project and shape the future of Wellbeing and Mental Health services and support at Coventry University.
