Mental health crisis review – experiences of black and minority ethnic communities

Race Equality Foundation, June 2015

The Race Equality Foundation was commissioned by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to conduct a series of interviews and focus groups with black and minority ethnic people, in specific areas, who had experience of crisis care. Focus groups and interviews were carried out in the five mental health trust areas between August and November 2014. Participants were recruited through local voluntary sector organisations. A total of 76 people took part in focus groups and/or interviews facilitated by local organisations, who carried out recruitment. Several of the people from focus groups were also interviewed on their own to gain a better insight into their experience.
