In 2015 #UKGrimeCypher was trending and achieved millions of views. Shystie’s entry proved the most popular with over a million views on that alone and her Cypher received praise from Grammy Award winning artist, Estelle!

This year #UKGrimeCypher is back and have teamed up with new charity Risen to raise awareness about mental health issues amongst the Black community in the UK.

About Risen

Risen are a charity committed to preventing mental health problems within the Black community through promoting social and economic inclusion. Research has proven that good mental health is founded in social inclusion. One of the most visible signs of this is healthcare. Statistics show that black and ethnic minority people in Britain are still more at risk to mental health problems than their white counterparts due in part social, economic and institutional inequalities that remain in Britain today.
