Institutional racism in acute inpatient mental health wards

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: October 2020
Summary

The IRIMH study (Institutional Racism in Inpatient Mental Health Wards) aims to investigate the ways institutional racism may manifest in NHS mental health wards. The study comprised a review of the literature and an analysis of patient interviews which revealed the explicit and implicit ways racism is perpetuated by both staff and patients. The next phase of the project will involve collecting data from individuals who have a lived experience of inpatient mental health care to assist in the development of novel logic models of institutional racism for NHS trusts.
