BIPOC Mental Health Month

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, observed July, brings awareness to the struggles of racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental illness in the United States.

Also called BIPOC Mental Health Month, this month calls us to understand, as the National Alliance of Mental Illness observes, though mental health conditions “do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity … background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult”

For more information about the issues and concerns raised during this month, see Mental Health America’s public education materials available here.
