Find Help, Find Hope!

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

1 in 5 people in the U.S. will at some point in their lives be affected by a mental health condition. Persons of minority cultures experience mental health issues in the same ratio as the population in whole, but often face more barriers to recovery due to lack of access to health care, lower rates of medical coverage, cultural insensitivity of providers, bias and discrimination in the delivery of care, language barriers, and higher levels of stigma. Active outreach and advocacy are vital to ensure that every individual has access to effective treatment and that stigma and discrimination do not disproportionately affect the seeking out or quality of health care among minority populations.
