African Health and Wellbeing Day is a landmark event that is aimed at the African and African Caribbean community of Britain. It brings together African centered therapists, wellbeing experts and organisations specialising in mental and physical health for a fun packed festival of educational talks, seminars and exhibitors.

The aim is to raise awareness of the culturally specific therapies and therapeutic services that build community resilience and healing. It’s a day for breaking taboos around accessing support services and showcasing solutions that tackle the shocking health disparities that Black (African and African Caribbean) people face.
