JULY 2024: BIPOC MENTAL HEALTH MONTH

BIPOCMHMonth

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Mental Health Month is a time to raise awareness around the unique mental health concerns and needs of diverse racial and ethnic populations; including those populations who have been harmed by inequitable systems and health disparities. Disadvantaged and underrepresented individuals and communities may experience unique hardships that can worsen mental health, which can be further complicated by barriers that may limit their access to mental health help when needed.
