Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, also known as BIPOC Mental Health Month, was established in 2008 in awareness of the additional challenges diverse communities face when it comes to their wellbeing and pursuing healthcare (National Alliance on Mental Illness). This month, we encourage our community members to check in on their own mental health and to educate themselves on the intersectionality of issues that surround mental health and mental health care. Let this be the push to seek help where it’s needed.
