In a Crisis?

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

In 2008, inspired by Bebe Moore Campbell’s charge to end stigma and provide mental health support for minoritized communities, July was designated as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mental health affects us all, and everyone deserves to have access to mental health support, resources, and care. Still, not everyone has equal and equitable access to these crucial services because of stigma, shame, or fear of judgment. These factors create significant barriers that prevent individuals from seeking mental health care.

Through education, advocacy, and community support and empowerment, we can create a future where mental health is a priority for all. Together, we can heal communities.
