A MESSAGE FROM MHA’S CEO

Mental Health America has long been at the forefront of progressive values in mental health care. We pride ourselves on being community-oriented and led by the voices of those with lived experience. Throughout our history, we have sought to lift the stories of individuals who are traumatized by discrimination or mistreatment.

MHA’s commitment began with our founder Clifford Beers, who sought to lead a social reform movement to end the inhumane institutionalization of those with mental illness. This undertaking changed the landscape of mental health care in America. Our Mental Health Bell, forged in 1953 from smelt-down shackles that used to bind “asylum patients,” is our proudest symbol. It rings out in hope for those oppressed by systemic injustices which undermine the mental health and well-being of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals and communities.

This month of July, we turn our hearts and minds to the mental health of individuals and communities of color with the release of this Toolkit.

Even as we look toward the future and prioritize the unique needs of the next generation, we must first look to the past to honor and learn from our history. July was first recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008. Campbell was a pioneer, author, and commentator, whose writings and advocacy highlighted the mental health of diverse communities in the U.S. Without her tireless dedication to the unique needs of Black and minoritized communities, the month of July would not be dedicated to promoting the mental health of BIPOC people.

Working for equity requires ongoing reflection and evolution. We are continually learning in our quest to be consistently and accountably equitable, and we know we have a long way to go before we can claim equity in mental health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are less likely to seek or gain access to mental health services and are less likely to receive high quality care which is culturally responsive and reflective. Barriers such as a high likelihood of being uninsured, differences of communication styles and language, and well-founded mistrust of mental health treatment also contribute to the inequities.

We acknowledge these serious inequities, and we are taking action to push for increased access to mental health care and improvements in culturally and linguistically responsive community-based approaches to healthcare. This includes bringing new voices, perspectives and representation to the table, increasing the amount of diverse educational materials, translating resources, and creating an equity-driven strategy to guide all of our work in public education, research, community-based care, and policy and advocacy.

We are using the term “BIPOC” to encompass all people and communities of color. We know that inclusive language and respect for individual self-identification is critical. We are listening to the voices of lived experience and evolving with them.

MHA hopes that each of you reading this will join us on this journey of learning and action as we move forward, together.

President & CEO, Mental Health America

Crisis / Support Line For Racial Equity Support

503-575-3764
Answered by BIPOC counselors 
M-F from 8:30 AM -5:00 PM PST

The Racial Equity Support Line is a service led and staffed by people with lived experience of racism. We offer support to those who are feeling the emotional impacts of racist violence and microaggressions, as well as the emotional impacts of immigration struggles and other cross-cultural issues.

Many of us experience racism every day.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture where racist acts happen often. From workplaces to housing to healthcare, we know that our communities aren’t getting the same kind of treatment as others.

Experiencing racism can harm our mental wellness.

Whether in small acts, or violent ones, racial bias can have serious emotional impacts. Racism changes how we see the world around us. It’s stressful to worry about how people see us as different or dangerous. It’s exhausting to notice the ways that people treat us as less-than, day in and day out. It’s heartbreaking to turn on the news and learn about more violence against people who look like us.

We get it. And we’re here to talk. To support. To connect.

The person who answers may be a stranger – but we understand what you’re going through. We’ll listen to your situation as you talk through your feelings, and we may offer resources based on what seems most helpful to you.

Call us today at 503-575-3764.

This line is available weekdays from 8:30am to 5pm, Pacific Standard Time.

If you have questions or want to reach the Director of Equity Initiatives, please email Donna Harrell at DonnaH@linesforlife.org.

Toll-Free Access

If you need toll-free access, call any line at Lines for Life and ask to be transferred to the Racial Equity Support Line during its operating hours.

For example, you can call the Suicide Prevention Crisis Line @ 1-877-273-8255 or the Safe+Strong Helpline @ 1-800-923-4457 and ask to be transferred to the Racial Equity Support Line between 8:30am and 5pm PST.

A MESSAGE FROM MHA’S CEO

Mental Health America has long been at the forefront of progressive values in mental health care. We pride ourselves on being community-oriented and led by the voices of those with lived experience. Throughout our history, we have sought to lift the stories of individuals who are traumatized by discrimination or mistreatment.

MHA’s commitment began with our founder Clifford Beers, who sought to lead a social reform movement to end the inhumane institutionalization of those with mental illness. This undertaking changed the landscape of mental health care in America. Our Mental Health Bell, forged in 1953 from smelt-down shackles that used to bind “asylum patients,” is our proudest symbol. It rings out in hope for those oppressed by systemic injustices which undermine the mental health and well-being of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals and communities.

This month of July, we turn our hearts and minds to the mental health of individuals and communities of color with the release of this Toolkit.

Even as we look toward the future and prioritize the unique needs of the next generation, we must first look to the past to honor and learn from our history. July was first recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008. Campbell was a pioneer, author, and commentator, whose writings and advocacy highlighted the mental health of diverse communities in the U.S. Without her tireless dedication to the unique needs of Black and minoritized communities, the month of July would not be dedicated to promoting the mental health of BIPOC people.

Working for equity requires ongoing reflection and evolution. We are continually learning in our quest to be consistently and accountably equitable, and we know we have a long way to go before we can claim equity in mental health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are less likely to seek or gain access to mental health services and are less likely to receive high quality care which is culturally responsive and reflective. Barriers such as a high likelihood of being uninsured, differences of communication styles and language, and well-founded mistrust of mental health treatment also contribute to the inequities.

We acknowledge these serious inequities, and we are taking action to push for increased access to mental health care and improvements in culturally and linguistically responsive community-based approaches to healthcare. This includes bringing new voices, perspectives and representation to the table, increasing the amount of diverse educational materials, translating resources, and creating an equity-driven strategy to guide all of our work in public education, research, community-based care, and policy and advocacy.

We are using the term “BIPOC” to encompass all people and communities of color. We know that inclusive language and respect for individual self-identification is critical. We are listening to the voices of lived experience and evolving with them.

MHA hopes that each of you reading this will join us on this journey of learning and action as we move forward, together.

President & CEO, Mental Health America

Crisis / Support Line For Racial Equity Support

Answered by BIPOC counselors 
M-F from 8:30 AM -5:00 PM PST

The Racial Equity Support Line is a service led and staffed by people with lived experience of racism. We offer support to those who are feeling the emotional impacts of racist violence and microaggressions, as well as the emotional impacts of immigration struggles and other cross-cultural issues.

Many of us experience racism every day.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture where racist acts happen often. From workplaces to housing to healthcare, we know that our communities aren’t getting the same kind of treatment as others.

Experiencing racism can harm our mental wellness.

Whether in small acts, or violent ones, racial bias can have serious emotional impacts. Racism changes how we see the world around us. It’s stressful to worry about how people see us as different or dangerous. It’s exhausting to notice the ways that people treat us as less-than, day in and day out. It’s heartbreaking to turn on the news and learn about more violence against people who look like us.

We get it. And we’re here to talk. To support. To connect.

The person who answers may be a stranger – but we understand what you’re going through. We’ll listen to your situation as you talk through your feelings, and we may offer resources based on what seems most helpful to you.

Call us today at 503-575-3764.

This line is available weekdays from 8:30am to 5pm, Pacific Standard Time.

If you have questions or want to reach the Director of Equity Initiatives, please email Donna Harrell at DonnaH@linesforlife.org.

Toll-Free Access

If you need toll-free access, call any line at Lines for Life and ask to be transferred to the Racial Equity Support Line during its operating hours.

A MESSAGE FROM MHA’S CEO

Mental Health America has long been at the forefront of progressive values in mental health care. We pride ourselves on being community-oriented and led by the voices of those with lived experience. Throughout our history, we have sought to lift the stories of individuals who are traumatized by discrimination or mistreatment.

MHA’s commitment began with our founder Clifford Beers, who sought to lead a social reform movement to end the inhumane institutionalization of those with mental illness. This undertaking changed the landscape of mental health care in America. Our Mental Health Bell, forged in 1953 from smelt-down shackles that used to bind “asylum patients,” is our proudest symbol. It rings out in hope for those oppressed by systemic injustices which undermine the mental health and well-being of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals and communities.

This month of July, we turn our hearts and minds to the mental health of individuals and communities of color with the release of this Toolkit.

Even as we look toward the future and prioritize the unique needs of the next generation, we must first look to the past to honor and learn from our history. July was first recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008. Campbell was a pioneer, author, and commentator, whose writings and advocacy highlighted the mental health of diverse communities in the U.S. Without her tireless dedication to the unique needs of Black and minoritized communities, the month of July would not be dedicated to promoting the mental health of BIPOC people.

Working for equity requires ongoing reflection and evolution. We are continually learning in our quest to be consistently and accountably equitable, and we know we have a long way to go before we can claim equity in mental health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are less likely to seek or gain access to mental health services and are less likely to receive high quality care which is culturally responsive and reflective. Barriers such as a high likelihood of being uninsured, differences of communication styles and language, and well-founded mistrust of mental health treatment also contribute to the inequities.

We acknowledge these serious inequities, and we are taking action to push for increased access to mental health care and improvements in culturally and linguistically responsive community-based approaches to healthcare. This includes bringing new voices, perspectives and representation to the table, increasing the amount of diverse educational materials, translating resources, and creating an equity-driven strategy to guide all of our work in public education, research, community-based care, and policy and advocacy.

We are using the term “BIPOC” to encompass all people and communities of color. We know that inclusive language and respect for individual self-identification is critical. We are listening to the voices of lived experience and evolving with them.

MHA hopes that each of you reading this will join us on this journey of learning and action as we move forward, together.

President & CEO, Mental Health America

Crisis / Support Line For Racial Equity Support

503-575-3764
Answered by BIPOC counselors 
M-F from 8:30 AM -5:00 PM PST

The Racial Equity Support Line is a service led and staffed by people with lived experience of racism. We offer support to those who are feeling the emotional impacts of racist violence and microaggressions, as well as the emotional impacts of immigration struggles and other cross-cultural issues.

Many of us experience racism every day.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture where racist acts happen often. From workplaces to housing to healthcare, we know that our communities aren’t getting the same kind of treatment as others.

Experiencing racism can harm our mental wellness.

Whether in small acts, or violent ones, racial bias can have serious emotional impacts. Racism changes how we see the world around us. It’s stressful to worry about how people see us as different or dangerous. It’s exhausting to notice the ways that people treat us as less-than, day in and day out. It’s heartbreaking to turn on the news and learn about more violence against people who look like us.

We get it. And we’re here to talk. To support. To connect.

The person who answers may be a stranger – but we understand what you’re going through. We’ll listen to your situation as you talk through your feelings, and we may offer resources based on what seems most helpful to you.

Call us today at 503-575-3764.

This line is available weekdays from 8:30am to 5pm, Pacific Standard Time.

If you have questions or want to reach the Director of Equity Initiatives, please email Donna Harrell at DonnaH@linesforlife.org.

Toll-Free Access

If you need toll-free access, call any line at Lines for Life and ask to be transferred to the Racial Equity Support Line during its operating hours.

For example, you can call the Suicide Prevention Crisis Line @ 1-877-273-8255 or the Safe+Strong Helpline @ 1-800-923-4457 and ask to be transferred to the Racial Equity Support Line between 8:30am and 5pm PST.

A MESSAGE FROM MHA’S CEO

Mental Health America has long been at the forefront of progressive values in mental health care. We pride ourselves on being community-oriented and led by the voices of those with lived experience. Throughout our history, we have sought to lift the stories of individuals who are traumatized by discrimination or mistreatment.

MHA’s commitment began with our founder Clifford Beers, who sought to lead a social reform movement to end the inhumane institutionalization of those with mental illness. This undertaking changed the landscape of mental health care in America. Our Mental Health Bell, forged in 1953 from smelt-down shackles that used to bind “asylum patients,” is our proudest symbol. It rings out in hope for those oppressed by systemic injustices which undermine the mental health and well-being of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals and communities.

This month of July, we turn our hearts and minds to the mental health of individuals and communities of color with the release of this Toolkit.

Even as we look toward the future and prioritize the unique needs of the next generation, we must first look to the past to honor and learn from our history. July was first recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008. Campbell was a pioneer, author, and commentator, whose writings and advocacy highlighted the mental health of diverse communities in the U.S. Without her tireless dedication to the unique needs of Black and minoritized communities, the month of July would not be dedicated to promoting the mental health of BIPOC people.

Working for equity requires ongoing reflection and evolution. We are continually learning in our quest to be consistently and accountably equitable, and we know we have a long way to go before we can claim equity in mental health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are less likely to seek or gain access to mental health services and are less likely to receive high quality care which is culturally responsive and reflective. Barriers such as a high likelihood of being uninsured, differences of communication styles and language, and well-founded mistrust of mental health treatment also contribute to the inequities.

We acknowledge these serious inequities, and we are taking action to push for increased access to mental health care and improvements in culturally and linguistically responsive community-based approaches to healthcare. This includes bringing new voices, perspectives and representation to the table, increasing the amount of diverse educational materials, translating resources, and creating an equity-driven strategy to guide all of our work in public education, research, community-based care, and policy and advocacy.

We are using the term “BIPOC” to encompass all people and communities of color. We know that inclusive language and respect for individual self-identification is critical. We are listening to the voices of lived experience and evolving with them.

MHA hopes that each of you reading this will join us on this journey of learning and action as we move forward, together.

President & CEO, Mental Health America

The National Resource Center on LGBTQ+ Aging is the country’s first and only technical assistance resource center focused on improving the quality of services and supports offered to lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender older adults, their families and caregivers.

A MESSAGE FROM MHA’S CEO

Mental Health America has long been at the forefront of progressive values in mental health care. We pride ourselves on being community-oriented and led by the voices of those with lived experience. Throughout our history, we have sought to lift the stories of individuals who are traumatized by discrimination or mistreatment.

MHA’s commitment began with our founder Clifford Beers, who sought to lead a social reform movement to end the inhumane institutionalization of those with mental illness. This undertaking changed the landscape of mental health care in America. Our Mental Health Bell, forged in 1953 from smelt-down shackles that used to bind “asylum patients,” is our proudest symbol. It rings out in hope for those oppressed by systemic injustices which undermine the mental health and well-being of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals and communities.

This month of July, we turn our hearts and minds to the mental health of individuals and communities of color with the release of this Toolkit.

Even as we look toward the future and prioritize the unique needs of the next generation, we must first look to the past to honor and learn from our history. July was first recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008. Campbell was a pioneer, author, and commentator, whose writings and advocacy highlighted the mental health of diverse communities in the U.S. Without her tireless dedication to the unique needs of Black and minoritized communities, the month of July would not be dedicated to promoting the mental health of BIPOC people.

Working for equity requires ongoing reflection and evolution. We are continually learning in our quest to be consistently and accountably equitable, and we know we have a long way to go before we can claim equity in mental health. Compared to their white counterparts, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are less likely to seek or gain access to mental health services and are less likely to receive high quality care which is culturally responsive and reflective. Barriers such as a high likelihood of being uninsured, differences of communication styles and language, and well-founded mistrust of mental health treatment also contribute to the inequities.

We acknowledge these serious inequities, and we are taking action to push for increased access to mental health care and improvements in culturally and linguistically responsive community-based approaches to healthcare. This includes bringing new voices, perspectives and representation to the table, increasing the amount of diverse educational materials, translating resources, and creating an equity-driven strategy to guide all of our work in public education, research, community-based care, and policy and advocacy.

We are using the term “BIPOC” to encompass all people and communities of color. We know that inclusive language and respect for individual self-identification is critical. We are listening to the voices of lived experience and evolving with them.

MHA hopes that each of you reading this will join us on this journey of learning and action as we move forward, together.

President & CEO, Mental Health America
