We are demanding culturally appropriate Mental Health care for Black, Asian, & Minority Ethnic communities in Leicester
Leicester is highly deprived, according to the Index of Deprivation 2010, ranking 25th most deprived of 326 local authority areas. It is clear from the numerous accredited research documents that clinical and health services alone are not enough to support people with mental ill health.
We call on Leicester City Council and the Leicester Clinical Commissioning Group to fund culturally appropriate activities and services for vulnerable, mentally ill people, which utilises and recognises the skills and knowledge within our communities, by working in partnership.
Welcome to the Adhar Project.
Mental illness affects one in four people at any point in time and the impact touches every person in society. There is a wide spectrum of conditions, including anxiety, addiction, obsession, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, phobia or an eating disorder.
Adhar Project is committed to helping people with these conditions as well as their families, carers and health professionals. We have 30 years of experience in helping Adults and Families live healthier, happier, and productive lives.
You can find out more on our Help & Information page. It also provides information for families, friends and carers, as well as an overview of our talking treatments.
