Black Thrive

Overview

Black Thrive take a holistic approach to addressing the causes of mental ill health. They believe social factors such as access to housing, education, employment and so on, can have an impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing. In response to this, Black Thrive brings together Lambeth’s Black communities and service providers to reduce the inequality and injustices experienced by Black people in mental health services.

Black Thrive was set up to bring together everyone interested in addressing issues surrounding mental health for Black people to ensure that resources and programs are well coordinated, complementary and most importantly reflect the wishes and wants of the people affected by mental health inequalities. They are a partnership between people, organisations, and public services which unites the energy and experience of us all to achieve real change.

Although Black Thrive does not provide services they connect people and organisations and support these partnerships to achieve change in the community. They also work closely with the NHS, the local council, the police and the voluntary sector to make sure change happens within the centre of these institutions.

The best way to keep up to date with what Black Thrive is achieving in the borough of Lambeth is to follow us them on social media platforms. They are on TwitterInstagram and Facebook. The monthly newsletter gives you the best information of what they are doing but also what else is happening in the world of mental health.  The most recent newsletter is on the website.  To join the mailing list please click here.
