Black & Minority Ethnicities

Depression and anxiety can affect anyone at any stage of their life. Research suggests that up to 1 in 4 people will experience a problem with depression or anxiety at some point in their life.

These problems can happen to men and women of all ages and backgrounds, and from all parts of the community including people from black and minority ethnic communities.

The Steps 2 Wellbeing services offers a culturally sensitive talking therapies service to help people better understand and manage their problems. We work closely with other agencies to ensure awareness and accessibility of our service. For example in Southampton we work with the Community Development Team to improve access for specific cultural and ethnic groups.

We have access to interpreters, which means we can provide support to individuals where English is not their first language. We also have access to self help materials that have been translated into other languages to aid an individual's recovery.

We offer a free, non-judgemental service which you can self-refer to or access via your GP. We offer appointments over the telephone, in GP surgeries and other community venues.
