Shifting The Dial
Shifting the Dial is a ground-breaking 3-year project to promote positive mental health among young African Caribbean men in Birmingham generously funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The project uses cultural activities including drama and spoken word to encourage young black men to discuss and explore mental health issues and build resilience through promoting wellbeing, improving self-esteem and encouraging personal development. Shifting the Dial aims to increase economic opportunities, raise mental health awareness and encourage inclusion whilst addressing the weathering effects of racism, discrimination, negative self-image and invisibility. The REP is proud to partner with the Centre for Mental Health, First Class Legacy and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Trust to deliver this ambitious project for young black men across the region and beyond.
