About

Minority Voices collected extensive data from young people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups about their awareness, understanding and experiences of using mental health services, and barriers to accessing help.

The study also collected information from the staff working with these groups and mapped service provisions across the country.
