The Trafford South Asian Mental Health Service was set up in April 1995 to work with South Asian individualís (aged 18 years and above) experiencing mental ill-health, their carers, families and communities who reside within the borough of Trafford. South Asian refers to individuals whose origin/heritage is from Pakistan, India or Bangladesh. The team can converse in Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi and English. The service is community based, located at Broome House.
"To ensure that culturally sensitive and appropriate services are AVAILABLE, ACCESSIBLE, APPROPRIATE and EFFECTIVE".
  • Tackle the stigma associated with the mental ill-health.
  • Increase service users, their carers and communities knowledge and understanding of mental ill-health.
  • Reduce symptoms of mental ill-health and the incidents of relapse.
  • Raise the awareness of early detection by recognising the signs and symptoms of mental illness.
  • Raise the awareness of the personal and social factors that could contribute towards mental distress.
  • Increase the level of confidence and empower service users to engage with services.
  • Promote positive physical and mental well-being
  • Increase service users, carers and the communities knowledge of local services.
  • Signpost individuals to other specialist services i.e. benefits agency, housing, immigration, legal etc.
