How many places are on offer?
Our Project- CHATS (Community Health Awareness Training Services) has been set up by a former Asylum seeker. As a result of culture, faith and stigma, BAME Mental Health sufferers especially Refugee and Asylum seekers usually do not seek help until at crisis stage. This is due to lack of support, training and understanding by both organisations and impacted individuals
