Mental health: ethnic minority carers’ experiences


In this section you can find out about the experiences of ethnic minority mental health carers by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 32 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as becoming a carer, support from family and friends and dealing with hospitals. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
Interviews in other languages: Cantonese (Leah, Wei); Gujarati (Kiran). You can start viewing topics by clicking 'Next Topic' above, or selecting from the list on the left. You can also view 'People's Profiles' from the tab above.
