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.
