Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

I have listed resources and useful links to places where you can undertake your own research and support services for BAME communities. Whilst I have included bullet pointed statistics, I urge you to see the numbers as the people that they refer too.

In this blog post I focus on race identity as the leading topic, however, this month also covers awareness for mental health in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Firstly, a thank you to @psychamorefindings for coming up on my Instagram feed and making me aware of this Awareness Month. Source: https://www.instagram.com/p/CCI785fDpfD/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Mental ill health can affect anyone. Regardless of race, gender or identity. However, access to treatment at the current time, can be dependable on a person’s background and identity.

Since 2008, July has been named as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States.
