Black History Month & Mental Health

October is Black History Month. The event recognises the contribution and achievements of those with African or Caribbean heritage. It’s also an opportunity for people to learn more about the effects of racism and how to challenge negative stereotypes.

Here we list events in Manchester and online with a focus on well-being and mental health.

Hashtag BLAK is proud to present a special Black History Month event with Being Amani author Annabelle Steele, hosted by Hashtag BLAK Co-Director Abiola Bello.

Join them at the start of Black History Month for a lively and interactive discussion on the important themes in Being Amani including Black Love, Black Joy and Black Mental Health.
