Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind is looking for people who can connect with diverse communities to bring about positive change that supports good mental health for people across Teesside.
There are deep-rooted racial inequalities in our society, including in mental health. People from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities are more likely to experience a mental health problem, less likely to receive support and have poorer outcomes from services. At Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind, they want to create opportunities for change.
Part of their plan includes connecting more directly with local people and communities. They want to be more proactive in opening up their services and work in partnership with local people and organisations to do this.
