Facebook Twitter YouTube
This special edition shines a light on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and the need for more mental health resources within this community. 

Get Educated

Due to longstanding systemic injustice, many barriers limit access to high-quality, culturally-informed mental health care for BIPOC communities. This month we share a few mental health resources that shine light on communities of color. 

Learning For Justice

Learn more about the need for interrupting school practices that disregard the mental health within the BIPOC community. Here are a few resources and lesson plans for teachers and caretakers to implement into students, patients, and personal daily practices. 

The Mental Health Coalition

The Mental Health Coalition is dedicated to addressing the mental health needs of BIPOC communities. Use these resources for yourself, or share them with a friend or loved one.

Equal Mental Health Treatment 

In 2020, the number of suicides in the U.S. declined by nearly 6%. However, some studies show that these trends may have increased among certain communities of color. This resource highlights ways for BIPOC communities to receive equal access to mental health treatments
