Diverse Young

Somerset’s first young ethnic community research group

The Diverse Young Somerset (DYS) project is created by and for young people in ethnic minority communities here in Somerset. A newly established group with the aim to research the correlation between mental health, education and discrimination.

It is an important piece of work as young people from ethnic minority groups in Somerset were never asked about their experience of discrimination related to education and mental health.

The core group of young people have created a survey to capture Somerset’s young ethnic communities voice.

The questionnaire is now live and the result will be reported with recommendations for the local authorities, organizations, and institutions dealing with young people from an ethnic minority community.

The research could give us a better understanding of the current condition of mental health services and education providers in relation to young people from the ethnic minority community.
