Miss our Black History Month celebration? Watch it online

8 Dec 2017

Around 140 delegates came to our best attended annual Black History Month conference yet in Birmingham in October. Now, everyone can watch the key moments.

Your story, your legacy mural

The conference, entitled Your Story, Your Legacy, heard uplifting and thought-provoking stories from expert speakers and performers about their life and career experiences.

The aim was to provide delegates with the opportunity to start telling their story and equip them with the skills to recognise the imagination, empathy and compassion of others. The day also included a session on kindness and caring for yourself.

The event was organised by RCN West Midlands in partnership with Health Education West Midlands and the Merit Vanguard, an alliance of four NHS mental health trusts in the West Midlands - Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Dudley and Walsall Mental Health NHS Trust and Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.
