July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
African Americans face unique challenges when it comes to mental health. Blacks are more likely to face psychological distress than Whites, but are also less likely to seek professional help. The lower socioeconomic status among Blacks compared to Whites corresponds to poorer mental health, while preconceived notions and stigma surrounding mental health hinders many from seeking treatment. This July, learn more about managing your mental health and what you can do to promote good mental health in your community.
