July is Minority Mental Health Month.

Why is it important to acknowledge Minority Mental Health Month?

First and foremost, mental illness does not discriminate. However, Latinos are far more likely than their peers to have mental health issues, according to a Salud America! Research Review. Furthermore, these issues often go unaddressed and untreated.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 to tweet about promoting healthier minds in communities of color in honor of Minority Mental Health Month.
