Mental Health Resources
Mental Health America recognizes that BIPOC individuals have rich histories. While there are stories of resilience born out of oppression, persecution, and abuse, there is immeasurable strength in each of these cultures. In an increasingly diversified America, we acknowledge the specificity of individual and group experiences and how it relates to their beliefs and well-being. BIPOC communities are significantly more likely to develop mental health conditions, and major barriers to mental health treatment are access and the need for understanding mental health supports.
#BeyondTheNumbers explores the nuances and uniqueness in BIPOC communities. Throughout the month of July, we will share on social media stories of individuals living with mental health conditions – people who want us to know more about who they are #BeyondTheNumbers. We invite you to share your story as well using the hashtags #BeyondTheNumbers and #BIPOCMentalHealthMonth.
In this toolkit, you can find information and resources for specific BIPOC communities, calls to action, worksheets, and general resources for BIPOC individuals.
