The Colour of Madness is a groundbreaking collection of work that amplifies the voices of people of colour and their experiences with mental health.
Statistics show that people from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds in the UK have not only experienced inadequate mental health treatment in comparison to their white counterparts, but are also more likely to be detained under the Mental Health Act. From micro-aggressions, inherent bias, religious/cultural influences and social stigma, people of colour are consistently fighting to be heard, believed, and offered help beyond the need for ticking off diversity boxes.
These are the voices of those who have been ignored.
