Exploratory univariate analysis was used to identify correlates of social capital in the sample, which were then evaluated in linear regression models.

Experienced discrimination from friends and immediate family was associated with reduced access to social capital from these groups, but this was not found for wider family, neighbours or mental health staff. Experience of discrimination in finding or keeping a job was also associated with reduced access to social capital.Conclusions.
