Black Mental Health UK unveils inaugural Top 30 list


The top agencies and individuals who have made contributions in the area of mental health and ethnicity this year are profiled in the latest edition of The Solution magazine.

Black Mental Health UK’s official online magazine has released their inaugural Top 30 list which acknowledges the many unsung heroes working in the sector and support one of society's most excluded groups.

Also featuring in the bumper festive edition of The Solution is an exclusive interview with Michael Eboda, publisher of the annual Power List which profiles some of Britain's high achieving Black people as well as an endorsement from NHS chief executive David Nicholson for the magazine where he says that the issue of ethnicity mental health is still firmly on the NHS agenda.

Elsewhere in the magazine, activists Kwaku and Awula Serwah share on ‘Why African British history matters’ and clinician Eric Adjaidoo’s pioneering medicines management research spotlights the physical side effect side effects of antipsychotic medication.

Matilda MacAttram, editor in chief of BMH UK’s The Solution Magazine said:

BMH UK’s top 30 for 2011 is a must read for anyone working in this sector. From Government to grass roots, we’ve covered it all. This list celebrates the contribution of the unsung heroes like Alicia Spence, Dr Dele Oladije, while welcoming the contributions of many working in other arenas like Archdeacon Kajumba, Stephen Ogongo and Helen Bart, who have championed our calls for progressive change.

Our exclusive interview with Michael Eboda of Powerful Media on his work that has inspired a generation to excellence is a must read. Eric Adajiadoo pioneering research on medicine management gives a clinician’s insight into patient experience you won’t find anywhere else.
