In the UK, Black men are over-represented at the coercive end of the mental health system but under-represented in terms of seeking help voluntarily. This situation reflects longstanding inequalities that arise from multiple sources. Amongst these are the conceptions of wellbeing and help-seeking that would enable Black men to access appropriate help at an early stage and the ways in which mental health service providers could adapt practice to meet the needs of Black clients.
