In the face of such disparities (and others), this year’s conference is dedicated to improving the mental health and wellbeing of Black women.

Little is known about Black women, trauma and mental health in the UK. They are either absent from research or included under the focus of ‘BAME’, ‘BME’ or ‘Women’. Whatever understandings or research that have been conducted, hardly ever makes it into the mainstream.
It’s time for change.
If you are interested in sharing your good practice or research in relation to Black Women, Trauma and Mental Health, please send us a submission to present at our conference.
Submissions may focus on, but not be limited to, the following:
How we can help Black women and girls heal from their traumatic experiences.
Therapeutic approaches and interventions that promote healing.
Collective healing in our communities.
Cultural healing practices.
Healing through music, storytelling, poetry, movement or art.
The intersection of gender and race.
Black mixed heritage experiences.
Trans and non-binary perspectives.
Any other topic or research related to our theme of Black Women, Trauma and Mental Health
