Diverse Experiences Connect

Is your heritage African Asian Black or an ethnic background that’s often overlooked or misunderstood by mental health services? Or do you care for someone who requires help with their mental health needs and feel they are not being supported? We would like to hear from you. 

Our Diverse Experiences Connect (DEC) programme wants to hear the experiences of people using mental health services in and around Gravesend to help shape future services. Take our short survey and share your experiences by clicking the button below. All information shared will remain confidential and will not be shared with any third parties.
