Racism, stigma and fear: Barriers in accessing mental health. Live Webinar on Oct 25th.
In honour of Black History Month, Keeping Well NCL and Nafsiyat presents their next live webinar, for all staff across the North Central London ICS.
Join us for this interactive webinar where we will discuss the existence of multicultural Britain over the centuries and how it lay hidden and barely visible before our modern age, due to injustices and racism towards communities deemed ‘foreign’ and / or ‘other.’ This webinar will be presented by Baffour Ababio, intercultural psychotherapist at Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre.
He will detail the impact these injustices had on the mental health care of Britain’s black and ethnic minority communities, including the assumption that non-Europeans would not benefit from talking therapy. There will also be reflections on how progress is being compromised by the persistence of racism, and a discussion on how these challenges might be overcome.
Baffour will also share how Nafsiyat have challenged these assumptions and how they’ve worked through the barriers of fear and stigma to incorporate a wealth of cultural affirming practices into their unique model to inspire therapy provision and engagement across cultural and ‘racial’ borders. This webinar will take place over Zoom and all NHS and social care staff within NCL are welcome to attend.
