National Minority Mental Health
Awareness Month

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed each July to bring awareness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental illness in the United States.

On July 13, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) hosted a webinar, “Better Health Through Better Understanding,” to highlight the unique mental health challenges and needs of historically disenfranchised or oppressed racial and ethnic groups, increase awareness, and recognize the importance of addressing mental health disparities that exist within minority communities.
