Notes to editors
1. Ethnic Diversity and Mental Health in London: Recent developments, by Frank Keating, David Robertson and Nutan Kotecha, is available from The King's Fund on 020 7307 2591.
2. Ethnic Diversity and Mental Health in London: Recent developments is one of a series of investigations into London's mental health that will inform The King's Fund Mental Health Inquiry. The Inquiry, which will report in November, will assess whether or not mental health services have improved in the capital since the first King's Fund Inquiry was conducted in 1997.
3. The paper brings together evidence from published literature and telephone and face-to-face interviews. The particular aim was to explore new developments, and not to revisit ground that has already been covered. It provides a snapshot of changes that have taken place over the past five years, reflections on the current situation for black and minority ethnic communities in London, and a discussion of the implications for the future.
