July is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Mental Health Month

This month is BIPOC Mental Health Month (also known as Minority Mental Health Month), an important reminder to focus on the mental health and well-being of our BIPOC students, teachers, staff, and members of our community. Providing social-emotional supports to our youth is a priority of our three-year plan and mission to serve the whole student.

There are many resources to learn more and find help, including Mental Health America, which offers information specific to BIPOC communities.

Additional resources for information and support:

The Office of Minority Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI)

National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network
