Balm Women presented a series of workshops during 2019, which focused on self care, self love, and body image.
Within our sessions we explore topics which impact on the mental health and wellbeing of Black women. We adopt an holistic approach which enables us to use a range of approaches in relation to self care. According to the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity survey of 2014 , 29.3%of black women experienced a common mental health disorder this may include, anxiety, depression, panic, and obsessive compulsive disorders. This is at a higher rate than for White British woman, or other White women. We consider strategies for combatting the damaging impacts of some of our experiences and in doing so create the foundations for self-care.
