Mind in Harrow Trustees believe that black lives and black voices matter. Racism is abhorrent and as Trustees we strive to ensure everyone in our Mind in Harrow Community feels safe and able to be the best version of themselves.
We know that individually and as a Board of Trustees we can do much more to identify, challenge and eradicate all forms of racism – systemic, unconscious, casual or otherwise. We affirm our commitment to fight racism together, through sensitive, respectful and productive dialogue and renewed engagement with Mind in London, Mind National; our stakeholders; partners and donors, as well as wider national and international initiatives.
We are a diverse and inclusive community that attracts and nurtures curious, kind and resilient people. We recognise that COVID-19 has amplified existing social and health inequalities for black communities and we will work collaboratively with our stakeholders and service users to ensure improved access to culturally appropriate mental health services.
We seek to better understand, promote and protect the needs and experiences of Black people, particularly those with mental health problems. We welcome being called to account to demonstrate our planned approach and share progress with you.
