July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

MMHM
July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. This year, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) will join partners in raising awareness about mental illness and its effects on racial and ethnic minority populations.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ),  minority populations in the U.S. are less likely to have access to mental health services and less likely to use community mental health services.
Visit the OMH National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month webpage for more information on resources, programs, and partnerships that aim to reduce mental health disparities among minority populations.
