The Mental Health project was funded by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Corporate Services. The service offered individual support for Arabic-speaking women who suffered from enduring Mental Health problems and live in the borough.
Women experiencing Mental Health problems often find their difficulties impact on their daily life. Those from Arabic-speaking communities can also find themselves very isolated, due to the stigma which still exists in the community in regards to Mental ill-Health.
This can make it particularly difficult for women to ask for help and access the services which can support them. Shame and fear is usually associated with why many of our service users tend not to seek help when needed, we are able to create a space for our service users to feel safe and comfortable and in a non-judgemental environment in order for them to express their worries and concerns to our trusted service
