"Black and minority ethnic communities lack confidence in mental health services" (National Service Framework for Mental Health, published by the Department of Health in 1999)
This book explores how and why this situation has come about, and makes specific practical, often surprising suggestions for changing the status quo.
In his latest and most critical analysis, Suman Fernando reflects on the current situation in light of his own personal experience, academic research and anecdotal reports. He weaves together themes of immense importance for the future of psychiatry and mental health services in a multi-ethnic cultural setting, exploring:
the nature of racism and its permeation into mental health services
the inside story of the struggle against racism in statutory and voluntary sectors of the mental health system.
the history of psychiatry and the role of spirituality, holistic thinking, psychotherapy and Asian traditions of medicine.
