Training for Race Equality across the Colour Line in Mental Health
A Scoping Webinar
March 24 2021 12 – 2pm
Joint hosts: Lancet Psychiatry; and WREN (the Whiteness and Race Equality Network in the Collaborating Centre for Values-based Practice, Oxford)
With continuing race inequalities in mental health – notably disproportionate use of compulsory treatment in young black men – the need for change has never been more urgent. This webinar is based on the belief that change depends on training initiatives being developed in co-production between practitioners and service users – this is why the webinar is about training ‘across the colour line’ in mental health. But co-production requires an equality of voices that, in turn, depends on those concerned coming together in the work of pre-production. As a scoping exercise, the webinar is a contribution to the pre-production required for co-producing training materials to deliver race equality in mental health.
Programme: The webinar will include presentations by a range of stakeholders and an extended panel discussion – further details will be announced soon.
Registration: The webinar is free, but you do need to register – registration details will be available once the programme is announced.
