Ethnicity

Home / Cause / Ethnicity

Ethnicity is included as a risk factor because different ethnic groups have different rates and experiences of mental health problems. These differences are not well understood and may be explained by a number of factors, possibly including poverty and racism. They may also be because mainstream mental health services often fail to understand or provide services that are acceptable and accessible to some non-white British communities, or that some groups are reluctant to engage with mainstream services. The ethnicity profile in Figure 23 shows that at the time of the 2011 census, Northamptonshire had significantly higher proportion of the population who identified themselves as White, and significantly lower proportions that identified themselves as Mixed, Asian, Black or Other than England.
