Ethnicity & Mental Health Improvement Project

The Ethnicity and Mental Health Improvement Project (EMHIP) is an attempt to reduce ethnic inequalities in access, experience and outcome of mental health care.

EMHIP has been designed to be a practical, locality-based service improvement programme to bring about change for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities in mental health care. The aim of the programme is to reduce inequalities in three specific areas where BME communities fare worse: in access, experience and outcomes of mental health care. 

EMHIP is a collaborative project involving the local mental health trust, South West London and St Georges Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG), South West London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Merton & Wandsworth Locality, and networks of BME voluntary, faith and community groups, convened by the Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network (WCEN).
