About Us

The Bangladeshi Mental Health Forum (BMHF) is a grassroot community led mental health charity based in Tower Hamlets. We have the following important objectives:

• raise awareness of mental health; challenge stigma and prejudicial views attached to mental health via events,  workshops, awareness campaigns and volunteer led initiatives (e.g. Community Mental Health Champions Project)
• advocate the importance of mental health to our overall wellbeing and to educate the community to view mental health in the same parity as physical health
• facilitate and signpost people to local activities and group (social/physical)
• encourage the community to access local mental health services
• provide one to one and group support
• campaign for better accessibility to mental health services (e.g. highlight the concerns of service users, carers and the community to relevant stakeholders)

Mental Health Facts:

• Mental Health difficulties are very common, affecting about 1 in 4 people
• Tower Hamlets has the 4th highest proportion of people with depression in London
• Estimated 30,000 adults in Tower Hamlets have a symptom of a common mental health problem
