Written by  Works for Freedom (30/11/99)

'Dancing to Our Own Tunes' reports on a national consultation with BME mental health services users on their experiences.

It makes a number of recommendations, including the need to link mental health services to broader race and rights based initiatives to do with education, citizenship rights, social inclusion, employment etc.
