July is BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month

Originally designated as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, BIPOC Mental Health Month highlights the unique mental health needs and challenges of historically oppressed racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Black and Indigenous people and people of color (BIPOC) experience a broad spectrum of ongoing discrimination and inequity rooted in America’s racist history, which contributes to poor mental and overall health outcomes.
