Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Event Date:

First announced by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008, Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month encourages awareness of mental health and illness among minority populations.

Historically, there have been serious disparities in mental health treatment and care for minority populations. Racial and ethnic minority youth experience mental health challenges comparable to their white counterparts; however, on average are less likely to receive mental health services. Provider bias and discrimination combined with a lack of access to services contribute to these disparities.

This July, be a champion for minority youth and get involved in raising awareness of the importance of ensuring equitable access to mental health treatment and care.
