July is BIPOC Mental Health Month

July 10, 2020, News

BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Mental Health month creates awareness about the unique experiences and struggles individuals who identify as BIPOC encounter with respect to mental health.

Formerly known as Minority Mental Health Month, BIPOC Mental Health Month is an opportunity to acknowledge and take steps toward addressing the mental health care challenges that face traditionally underserved and under-represented communities.
