July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month!
Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, age, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background, however, background can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 2008 to start changing this. We will be discussing the challenges of mental health conditions, health coverage and the stigma of mental illness on our social media pages this month to highlight how these problems are increased by less access to care, cultural stigma and lower quality care.
