This interactive workshop discusses the co-produced findings of a systematic review for the NIHR funded project ImprovE-ACT. The focus of the review was to find out about the lived experiences of Black males who have been detained under Mental Health legislation. Through our partnership with experts by experience, we have identified some of the ‘silences’ that do not currently feature in the academic literature. During the workshop, we will: introduce you (by video) to some of our Experts by Experience, encourage you to think about the silences we have identified, and support you to identify issues within mental health detention that need to change.
