Mental health conditions do not discriminate.
Every July, we recognize National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month to bring more attention and focus to healing, connecting, prioritizing mental health, and bringing awareness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities continue to face regarding mental illness in the United States.
HealthyMindsPhilly and DBHIDS encourage local leaders, community-based organizations, faith leaders, healthcare providers and individuals to educate your communities regarding mental health stigma.
Together, we can realize our shared vision of a city — and a nation — where minorities affected by mental illness can get the appropriate support and quality of care to live healthy, fulfilling lives.
DBHIDS is dedicated to educating, strengthening, and serving individuals and communities so that all Philadelphians can thrive. This month — and every month — always remember: It’s OK to not be OK. You’re not alone. We are here to help.
