For the future, the group aims to draw on Sound Minds arts expertise to deliver imaginative ‘edutainment’ to raise awareness of mental health issues among hard-to-reach groups and they are planning to expand the peer support idea to help people when they leave hospital.


Sound Minds new patron, Melba Wilson OBE is also National Programme Lead for Mental Health Equalities. 'I am delighted that Canerows and Plaits work has been recognised by this Comic Relief grant award. It underscores the impact that practical, grassroots measures can have in helping to create a real improvement in services for people from BME communities. Well done to everyone involved!’

Sound Minds CEO Paul Brewer says ‘It’s brilliant that Comic Relief are backing the project. ‘The ‘Canerows’ team have worked really hard over the last year to lay the foundations for this and now the project can develop and grow’.
