What Black History Month Means to Us

We recognize the significance of Black History Month lies in looking back and understanding how far we have come to draw the strength and wisdom necessary to move forward.

 

NAMI Long Beach Area’s mission of mental health education and support includes sharing hope and speaking up for Black Mental Health and Minority Mental Health to build equity in mental health resources.

By observing Black History Month proactively, we become the change.

Below are five suggestions to proactively observe Black History Month.

  1. Refresh your history. Learn more about the African American legacy.
  2. Discover what provider cultural competence in mental health is and why it is important.
  3. Speak up for minority mental health through social media: #minoritymentalhealth/ Fb.com/minoritymentalhealth.
  4. Become a member of NAMI Long Beach Area and help to advocate for equity in mental health resources.
