Sony Music and Mind partner on mental health support for young people affected by racism
12 Oct 2021
Sony Music UK and Mind have launched a partnership that will research the best mental health interventions for young people affected by racism.
The youth-led research will be tailored to support the mental health of young people who experience racism. The impact of racism on mental health is sometimes described as racial trauma and research on racial trauma is still limited in the UK.
This new project will seek to understand the best blueprint for interventions and support. Statistics show that people from racialised groups may be more likely to experience mental health problems but less likely to receive appropriate mental health support.
The Mind project Young People and Racial Trauma is part of the latest wave of grants for Sony Music’s UK Social Justice Fund, part of the global Sony Music Group commitment to support marginalised communities and help address structural inequality for lasting change.
Sony Music UK’s funding will enable Mind to conduct research, generate and test new ideas through collaboration and curate culturally informed interventions for young people experiencing racism.
