Prioritising and advancing the representation of Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds in psychiatry and psychology.
The Black and Minority Ethnics in Psychiatry & Psychology Network provides a community for registered and prospective ethnic minority mental health professionals to acquire social, emotional, psychological and developmental support.
It was founded in 2019 in response to the gross underrepresentation of Black, Asian and ethnic minority professionals in psychological academic teaching and mental health practice.
We work to advance the representation of Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds in psychiatry and psychology by hosting events and activites which address and tackle racial inequalities in the mental health profession.
Since our inception in September 2019, we have been successful in hosting several conference and training events which provide advice, share knowledge and empower ethnic minoritised aspiring psychologists from a range of disciplines.
