July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

July is MMHAM

Each July, several mental health organizations across the country shed light on the multitude of mental health experiences within communities of color, including Black and Indigenous people, and others that face disproportionate inequities due to systemic barriers and historical adversity.

Inspire others to raise awareness and take part in sharing information, resources and support for the mental health of minority communities. Visit our MHTTC Training and Events Calendar and Products and Resources Catalog to access free training and resources with a focus on minority populations. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the MHTTC Network has also been developing events and resources specific to the differential effects of COVID-19 on mental health care for specific populations. You may access these events and resources on our webpage here.
