BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health concern. Mental health does not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the emotional, mental, or behavioral health regardless of their background. However, background and identity can make access to mental health treatment and support much more difficult. National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed each July to bring mindfulness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental health. Learn about the perspectives of mental health across backgrounds and communities:

African American Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (AABH-COE)
