BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month

We observe Minority Mental Health Awareness Month / BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month to bring awareness to the compounding struggles faced by underrepresented individuals with mental health concerns due to racism within and beyond the mental healthcare system. We aim to utilize this awareness to promote racial equity in our systems and communities.
