In the context of ongoing debate about negative stereotyping and poor risk assessment practices with minority ethnic groups in British society, this article attempts to develop an account of the dynamics of discrimination against black people in the area of mental health policy and practice. It is argued that a framework for the analysis of discrimination can be usefully constructed in terms of the relationship between the processes of pre-emptive criminalisation, institutional racism and risk analysis.
