The costs of race inequality

16 October 2006

Research has repeatedly shown that there are major differences in the way that Black African and Caribbean people come into contact with mental health services and in the benefit they derive from them, compared with the rest of the population.

The costs of race inequality seeks to strengthen and support the case for action by showing that these poorer experiences and outcomes come at not just a personal cost to those involved – they also increase the financial costs of mental health care. The report concludes that more relevant and effective mental health services for Black communities would reduce the costs of more coercive treatment while also delivering markedly better outcomes.
