MYRIAD is looking for a consultant or organisation to develop and facilitate an Action Learning Set for the programme, working with global majority* creative practitioners.
MYRIAD, our partnership project with Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and NHS Greater Manchester, aims to increase mental health support for people from global majority communities by developing and supporting a global majority, creative health workforce.
Greater Manchester’s Creative Health Strategy sets out the potential of culture and creativity to address health inequities and support the health and wellbeing of all GM’s residents. The strategy sets out six priority areas of focus including training, support, and development for practitioners, testing, and learning from new approaches and the development of new partnerships: all with a focus on addressing inequities. More information and a copy of the strategy can be downloaded here.
We know that nationally, people from global majority communities face barriers to getting support with their mental health and wellbeing and this is no different in Greater Manchester. The diversity of our population, whilst one of our greatest strengths, also means that many children, young people, and adults from global majority communities are unable to get the help and support they need.
MYRIAD is a creative health response to these issues and has been co-designed with a consortium of partners to increase the diversity and range of creative, mental health support activity available to and accessible by global majority communities across GM. We aim to achieve this through a two-year programme of support and development for global majority creative practitioners including training, career development, networking opportunities and the opportunity to take part in test and learn projects as lead or supporting practitioners.
MYRIAD has financial support from The Baring Foundation as part of their investment priority to improve creative opportunities for people with mental health problems from ethnically diverse backgrounds. Please refer to their report here.
