July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Updated: Jul 8

July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, an opportunity for us to call attention to the unique mental health struggles racial and ethnic communities face.


Throughout the month, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) will focus on promoting tools and resources addressing the stigma about mental health among racial and ethnic minority populations, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

OMH encourages state, tribal, and local leaders, community-based organizations, faith leaders, healthcare providers and individuals to educate your communities regarding mental health stigma.

Additionally, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing will share resources, original content and learning opportunities to raise awareness and keep you informed. Visit our “Addressing Health Equity and Racial Justice” resource directory to get started!
