We are pleased to announce our five-year partnership with Queen Mary, University of London, the University of Manchester and Words of Colour Productions to establish the Synergi Collaborative Centre working on issues of ethnicity, severe mental illness and multiple disadvantage. Please see our joint press release here.
Lankelly Chase has worked in the field of ethnic inequality in mental health for many years. We see this issue as something of a litmus test for how life experiences, structural inequality and the behaviour of systems converge in people’s lives to create severe and multiple disadvantage. We hope the energy and creativity of the Synergi Collaborative Centre team will bring a new sense of optimism and possibility to this area. We also expect the work to shed new light on the complexities of the relationship between ethnicity and multiple disadvantage.
We look forward to sharing more about the work as it progresses.
