July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental illness does not discriminate, and yet minorities have less access to treatment, face greater stigma, and are underrepresented in clinical trials. Help us raise awareness and bring change. Thank you to all the providers in mental health who work with mental health inequities in minorities. Let's keep increasing education and spreading awareness!
