What Is Nilaari?
What do we do?
We are a Black led charity and for 21 years we have provided mental health support, especially to adults from Black Asian and Minoritised Communities
Where are we?
We are based in the community of Easton in Bristol
Who are we?
We are a diverse team of professional and experienced practitioners and therapists
We use the term Black and Minoritised Communities (BMC) to refer to groups who are discriminated against and subordinated in status to a more dominant group on the grounds of race, culture, colour or nationality – not just skin colour
To offer culturally appropriate mental health services to Black and Minoritised Communities in the southwest
To help people access quality mental health treatment
To reduce the stigma associated with mental illness
We are steered and directed by a Board of Trustees and are proud to be supported by our Patrons:
Sherrie Eugene-Hart – Former TV and Radio Reporter, sign language interpreter, writer, speechmaker and florist
Peaches Golding OBE – Business Executive, administrator, and former academic who is Lord-Lieutenant of the County and City of Bristol
Roger Griffith MBE – Writer, Social entrepreneur, Lecturer and activist. He has been a diversity trainer and champion for over 30 years
“My therapist asked pertinent and probing questions which challenged me at times. She normalised talking therapies. Nilaari is a vital, much needed service for Black communities” Male client (45)
