Being Black, Going Crazy?

Documentary exploring mental health among black people in the UK, looking into why black people are more likely to be diagnosed with a mental health condition which results in them being sectioned.

Blogger and radio presenter Keith Dube, who is motivated by a personal experience of depression, wants to find out just why the black community is facing a mental health crisis.

By spending time in a secure mental health unit, tapping into the thoughts and experiences of his 25,000 followers on Twitter and speaking to mental health experts and community leaders, Keith explores what might be behind the statistics. From racism to religion and social deprivation to stigma within the community, why do so many black people seem to be affected by mental health issues?
