BME-1

People from black and minority ethnic (BME) communities tend to have poorer health, a shorter life expectancy and have more difficulty in accessing health care than the majority of the population. Mental health is an area of particular concern for the minority communities in the UK’s multicultural society. The most important factors in the mental health of BME personnel are largely similar to the wider population, namely, heavy workload, trauma and personal problems.

However some BME individuals can have additional mental health pressures which may include

  • Perceived or actual barriers caused by intentional or unintentional discrimination, which can affect the mental state of individuals.
  • Perceived and actual racism and discrimination can have a cumulative or direct impact on mental health.
  • Community and cultural pressures
