Research led by the University of Warwick’s Warwick Medical School is challenging accusations of racism against Psychiatry services in England and Wales.
In 2005, the “Count me in” census for England and Wales showed higher rates of admission for mental illness and more adverse pathways to care for some black and minority ethnic groups and led to accusations of institutional racism within psychiatry. Several reports and inquiries have also alleged that psychiatry is institutionally racist.
