July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month and I’m so glad such a taboo topic in POC spaces is being talked about.
I learned through Instagram that it’s the 10-year anniversary of the US House of Representatives announcing July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month (they announced it in May 2008).
Right before July, I came across Jas and Jam’s latest podcast episode on (and titled) Mental Illness.
It’s definitely worth listening to no matter where your mental health falls–they’re VERY passionate and well-versed on the topic. Unfortunately due to experience.
TW: Self-harm, sexual abuse, eating disorders, etc. are mentioned in this podcast.
This is a great resource to bookmark for whenever you need it. July and beyond.
