What was the mental health impact of the Windrush scandal?
As part of its race equity work, National Mind, is supporting The Ties That Bind project, which is seeking insights into the mental health impact of the Windrush scandal on Caribbean and Black African families.
Part of this work includes documenting the mental health trauma on Black British communities through a survey.
This project is one of the first of its kind to explore the intergenerational mental health consequences of the Windrush scandal. Victims of the Windrush Scandal endured forced detention, a loss of employment, housing and livelihoods and were forcibly separated from families. They often continue to have negative experiences as a result of hostile immigration policies.
