BME Inside/Outside NIMHE Report

In 1999, the National Service Framework or the NHS Plan for Mental Health in England, highlighted but did not addressed the particular needs of black and minority ethnic groups. In response to these policy imperatives, the growing political awareness and discourse around institutionalised racism, and consistent data showing adverse pathways into and through care for ethnic groups. In 2003 the Department of Health (UK) launched a national strategy with proposals for reforming the service experiences and service outcomes of people from black and minority ethnic groups who experience mental ill health.

This archived seminal policy document on black and minority ethnic communities and mental health care, is here for easier access to those interested. It is now difficult to access from DH archive by a weblink. This is possibly the only place Inside/Outside NIMHE can be found.
