This July we need to raise awareness for BIPOC Mental Health, this month is dedicated to bringing attention to the difficulty that BIPOC (Black, Idigenous, People of Color) experience in regards to their mental health and the unique struggles they face.
Mental illness is a nondiscriminatory affliction, impacting anyone regardless of demographics or background. There is a lot of stigma about mental health in general and unfortunately, marginalized individuals face that stigma even more and face greater impacts on their mental health due to not receiving the care, education, and help they need.
We need to break the stigma and provide more access to care so that those dealing with mental illness do not have to go through the unnecessary barrier of society’s judgment and can find the right treatment that fits their personal life, cultural beliefs, and customs.
