Aftercare of black ethnic minority people discharged from psychiatric hospitals

A team from Leeds University

Black ethnic minority people discharged from psychiatric hospitals and their carers are inadequately catered for by aftercare services; their housing needs though pressing are also often hidden, according to a new study.

The survey of 101 discharged people, conducted by a team from the School of Sociology and Social Policy of Leeds University, found many poorly prepared for return to the community, with widespread experience of poverty, unemployment, racial harassment and social isolation.
