July is the month to bring awareness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental illness within the United States. National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed each July. Please be aware mental health affects us all, and everyone should have the right to be heard and healed without shame or judgment.
Mental health includes not just your emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act, and helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.
We hope this post inspires you to join us in raising awareness by sharing information, resources, and support available for mental health for the various communities. Please see the resources below:
