Judged & misunderstood #being autistic with an African heritage.

Sharing lived experience

This project was funded by the national lottery.

Objective: To allow families of black African background to share loved experiences of either parenting children with a diagnosis of autism or experts by experiences sharing their journey.

Forum: Zoom focus groups every other week.

Aim: To provide a safe space but also allow project lead to collect the necessary information needed to improve knowledge of the subject and stamp our stigma in people of black African background.

For more details please contact us on:

Please note that while it’s a safe space, the focus groups are open with no referral process.

Youth mental health week MBS and Liverpool BAME communities

Day 1: 28/10/21.

The day commenced at 10:00 am with registration of 48 young people from 5-18yrs.

Children where excited about the day as majority had attended last year’s sessions and new ones ofcourse didn’t know what to expect!!. We had our meet and greet session and warm up..

Children 5-9yrs children had a morning of emotional expression by LD nurse Solage and an afternoon with social worker Rose katana. They covered scenarios on describing personalities using art and colours. It was great to see children define happiness, patience, care and mental strength. We also had children that defined dark thoughts and confussion via art… But this then helps with our coping mechanism session on day 3. We also had older children cover some theories on mental illness and keeping safe under social care pollicies.

Many thanks to our voluteers.
