Mental Health America & Black History Month

Mental Health America

In celebration of Black History Month, MHC member Mental Health America are highlighting Black and African American contributions to the mental health movement because they are oftentimes overlooked. Without recognizing the lack of representation of Black and African American people in the mental health movement, we do a disservice and continue to inflict harm. Learning about the history of systemic racism during Black History Month – and all year – in the mental health system and movement and how it harms Black communities in the US and around the world is key for creating a mentally healthier world.
