Mental health in the Asian community

Mental health services for people from the South Asian community need to be improved, a leading psychiatrist has told the Victoria Derbyshire programme.

Dr Dinesh Bhugra, Professor of Mental Health and Diversity at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London, says the NHS should ensure services are culturally sensitive and appropriate, with staff receiving extra training to encourage people to come forward and to reduce stigma.

He spoke to Naga Munchetty along with Tamanna Miah and Aneela Ahmed about their health issues.
