July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed in July to
bring awareness to the unique mental health struggles that racial and
ethnic minority communities face.

Particularly through the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health and
substance use treatment services have been harder to access. This
month, we are promoting tools to contribute to mental wellness and
health for minority communities!
