Because of COVID-19 gathering guidelines, we will be having an online meeting.
In May of 2008, the US House of Representatives announced July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
The goals were to improve access to mental health treatment and services and to enhance public awareness of mental illness and mental illness among minorities.
As July is mental health month and especially with the current concerns about racial justice, we will be viewing videos from NAMI Strength over Silence docuseries from its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Journey and having a conversation about NAMI South Bay’s role to deliver help and hope to all who need it.
NAMI National CEO Daniel H. Gillison, Jr., stated:
“As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, it is our responsibility to serve all. While as an organization we are still early in our intentional Diversity, Equity and Inclusion journey and have much to do, we have renewed our commitment to our values. We continue to strive to deliver help and hope to all who need it. NAMI stands in solidarity with everyone impacted across the country. You are not alone.”
