Media coverage of mental health, particularly of black mental health issues, has a chequered history. This article discusses media reporting of black mental issues from the 1990s, with the case of Christopher Clunis, to the ongoing case of Kingsley Burrell. It shows that there has been an increase in the visibility of black and minority ethnic (BME) people and mental health in the media, and a more informed shift has been reflected in the media coverage of Kingsley Burrell. The article argues that, while there have been a positive shift, the media has a long way to go to abandon racialised representations. One of the biggest catalysts for positive change has been the growth of online and social media. Specialist publications have blog or community sections that allow both professionals and service users to give their perspective on adult services and possible solutions. Voluntary and community organisations are generating their own media online to inform and influence debate. Today, therefore, the debate on mental health is no longer one-sided.

The Shared Care Option Placements for Elderly People team, in Lewisham, which provides short- and long-term residential placements for elderly people has just completed a six-month pilot project, aimed at offering black elders and elderly people suffering from mental ill-health a flexible alternative to the more traditional day care services. The scheme involves people being cared for in carers' own homes; an approach which is viewed as having much to offer black elders in particular, as they may be reluctant to enter an all-white environment.
