SCIE: The mental health and wellbeing of elders in black and minority ethnic communities: working together for mental wellbeing

This brief video, produced by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), highlights the experiences of elders in the Chinese community in Barnet when accessing services.  It portrays how the Chinese Mental Health Association (CMHA) has been able to develop a pilot programme to facilitate access to services, such as a culturally-appropriate befriending scheme, print materials regarding direct payments, and access to Chinese and western doctors.  The CMHA was able to develop this programme by bidding for funding from the local authority’s Innovation Fund.  Click on the link to learn more!
