The Foundation worked with BBC Look North to produce a news story in which Gambinga Gambinga shares his story on not receiving mental health support when he needed it.
Gambinga's experiences and that of many other Black men, are experiences that must be heard. The inequalities which exist for Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, but particularly for Black men, exist throughout the mental healthcare pathway, from access to outcomes.
Drawing attention to these inequalities is necessary at every possibility. Which is why we also utilised the opportunity to put the BBC in contact with Heather Nelson, the CEO of Black Health Initiative, a community engagement organisation working towards equality of access to health and social care.
These strong networks are fundamental to advancing racial equality in mental healthcare, and across all public services. Our voices are louder when we work together.
