July is Minority Mental Health Month: All you need to know

July is going to be majorly about Minority Mental Health Month at Tickle.Life! Here is all that you need to know.

The National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is marked for every July since 2008.

Recognising the work of Bebe Moore Campbell, an American author, journalist, teacher, and an advocate of mental health needs of the Black community and other underrepresented communities, the National Minority Mental Health month was designated to further the mission.

It has also been renamed as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) Mental Health Month, in recognition of language that is more intersectional.

Several research studies have shown that BIPOC people have a lesser chance of receiving diagnosis, information and treatment for their mental illness, and accessibility to affordable mental health services is a big issue.

Some of the topics that we shall be discussing will revolve around racism and mental health, stigmatization of sex work, challenges related to mental health when it comes to queer black people and people of colour, disability and mental health accessibility, and emerging new challenges like mental health of muslims and recent immigrants in North America, mental health of people, especially BIPOC people associated with animal liberation, systemic challenges to mental health faced by indigenous communities, and a lot more.

We'll be having various conversations this July on Minority Mental Health on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Join us there tagging @Tickle.Life and the hashtag #MinorityMentalHealthMonth!
