Situation

There is very little support to Black residence who suffer with mental health problems. The service provided by WBSC is the only one in Walsall that caters for this client group and it is important that it continues to recognise the cultural aspect of any treatment and preventative measures. The funds used will be spent on service users, providing activities such as reflexology, workshops on coping with stress, health, diet etc.
