Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
July 1 – July 31

Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 2008 to start changing this. Learn more at: https://www.nami.org/Get-Involved/Awareness-Events/Minority-Mental-Health-Awareness-Month (opens in a new window).
