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

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

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

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

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

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
