The Website has Been set up as Part of a Programme for Delivering Race Equality in Mental Health Care in Dorset and Somerset










England, Dorset and Somerset BME (PRWEB) October 8, 2006

The E-quality 4 Mental Health website for Black and Minority Ethnic Communities in Dorset and Somerset is aimed at both people from black and minority ethnic communities who want to know more about mental health care and at staff in mental health and related services who want to know more about race and culture.

This website is aimed at both people from black and minority ethnic communities who want to know more about mental health care and at staff in mental health and related services who want to know more about race and culture.

The website is concerned mainly with mental health and as such it covers information about both mental health services in Dorset and Somerset and advice on how to remain mentally healthy and particularly how to deal with everyday pressures and stresses in the modern world.

The website has been set up as part of a programme for delivering race equality in mental health care in Dorset and Somerset. Delivering Race Equality in Mental Health Care is a major policy initiative which was published in 2005 and which recognises that people from black and minority ethnic communities do not always receive the same care in mental health services and that there is still a high level of fear of mental illness in black and minority ethnic communities.

The website has been developed with the help of people from black and minority ethnic communities and staff and the intention is to continue to involve people in adding to and expanding the content of the website.

The site is still in development and has been designed so that it can grow especially when people from black and minority ethnic communities identify information which could be useful in helping people better to understand mental health issues.

The intention is that staff will also be able to access and add information about race and culture which will help them in their efforts to ensure that services are as sensitive to individuals and their needs and wishes as is possible.

Privasoft’s ?Amazing Christmas Race? Raises More than 600 Pounds of Food for Ottawa Food Bank

Privasoft’s ‘Amazing Christmas Race’ Raises More than 600 Pounds of Food for Ottawa Food Bank











Ottawa ON (Vocus) February 4, 2010

Privasoft, an Ottawa software company and leading provider of freedom of information process automation software announced today that the Ottawa Food Bank has reported their holiday donation to amount to more than 600 pounds of non-perishable groceries. During the company’s recent Holiday party, held on December 4, 2009, employees took part in Privasoft’s “Amazing Christmas Race”. This team building exercise not only brought employees closer together, but also gave them a way to help others in a time when many Holiday parties involve thousands of dollars in entertainment.

Privasoft employees scoured the city on a scavenger hunt that led them through the task of purchasing food from the Food Bank’s list of “Most Needed Items” to a finish line which brought them by foot to personally deliver their donations to the Michael Street Food Bank headquarters.

The Ottawa Food Bank operates under the motto “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world”, a concept that was successfully transferred to Privasoft’s employees as illustrated in employee Peter Henry’s independent blog post, where he exclaimed that “This things NOT JUST a scavenger hunt for fun now, this is turning into something much, much, MUCH BIGGER than us, our team, or our company!”

The Privasoft team delivered over 600 pounds to the Ottawa Food Bank that night, ensuring that a few more Ottawans in need would have food for the holidays. Nicole Gibson, the Director of Marketing at Privasoft, stated that “We have been donating to the Ottawa Food Bank every Christmas for 5 years…this was the first Amazing Race, but won’t be the last!”
