COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR RACE, RELIGION & FAITH –
In 1991, the Granby Community Mental Health Group (GCMHG) established Mary Seacole House, a mental health resource day service offering support and advice in emotional and practical matters for primarily Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Communities of Liverpool 8, although open to all people experiencing mental health problems. The intention was to meet the unmet needs of the BME communities in the area, which has since been extended to Merseyside. Mary Seacole House has 27 years of delivery experience of supporting people with mental health needs, offering culturally sensitive services and providing specialist advice, guidance and support to others in this complex area. This exceptional organisation currently serves more than 350 people with mental health problems and approx. 120 BME families and carer’s annually, providing a range of activities and services including 1-2-1 support and weekly therapeutic activities.
