July is Minority Mental Health Month.

Mental illness does not discriminate based on race. However, Latinos are far more likely than their peers to have mental health issues, according to a Salud America! Research Review. Additionally, Latinos and blacks are less likely than whites to get the mental health services they need, thus leading to a plethora of problems such as missing work.

Join us for #SaludTues on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 for a tweetchat in honor of Minority Mental Health Month.
