Ethnicity and Mental Health Improvement Project (EMHIP)

The Ethnicity and Mental Health Improvement Project (EMHIP) is a community-driven initiative committed to addressing ethnic disparities in mental health care. EMHIP's focus lies in improving access, enhancing experiences, and ultimately achieving better outcomes for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities. This collaborative project involves local mental health trust SWLSTG, South West London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Merton & Wandsworth Locality, and BME voluntary, faith, and community groups facilitated by WCEN.

EMHIP offers welcoming health and wellbeing hubs, like the one at New Testament Assembly Church in Tooting. Here, guests can openly discuss life challenges in a supportive environment. Services include mental health and wellbeing clinics, physical health checks, healthy lifestyle sessions, advice on areas such as housing and welfare, family support, education, training, and employment assistance, all tailored to individual needs. EMHIP also promotes social connections by linking guests to culturally relevant local services and encourages collaboration among community groups in a Hub and Spoke model, with a focus on bridging the gaps in access, experience, and outcomes in mental health care. For more detailed information please visit the official EMHIP website here.
