July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
Here we are already, folks--it is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month! Especially in minority communities, problems related to mental illness are increased by less access to care, cultural stigma and lower quality care. This makes it more difficult for individuals to believe in treatment, seek treatment, and benefit from treatment in the same ways as less marginalized populations.
