" Genuinely Committed to Providing Care and Support to the Community"
Waltham Forest Black People's Mental Health Association (BPMHA) is a day centre which provides comprehensive day service opportunities to those experiencing mental health challenges.
The organisation offers a range of services to service users and their carers who live in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.
Our aim is to provide a forum for black people and people from other ethnic minorities to meet, discuss and raise awareness of mental health needs in the community.
BPMHA also supports and empowers black people through advocacy services. This enables service users to live more independently in their own homes.

Individual support of clients through care plans
