It was a privilege to speak at the 13th Annual Black Mental Health Conference, hosted by Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network.
As a society, we have to understand the role cultural contact and intersecting identities play when working to support those struggling with their mental health.
And we must continue to push back against stigma and foster an open and honest dialogue around mental health in our communities.
Thank you for having me.
It was great to be part of the 'Any Questions' panel last night. During the show, I spoke about how every death caused by the Covid-19 pandemic is more than just a number. Each death is a family, torn apart by grief by losing a loved one.
Mask wearing, supporting people with proper sick pay, ensuring that indoor areas are ventilated - these are all things that should have never ended. As winter approaches, the Government must take the risk posed by Coronavirus seriously.
The Government needs to step and take the safety of people seriously.
