According to the CDC, many people from racial and ethnic minority groups have difficulty gaining access to mental health care. The reasoning can be due to cost, lack of adequate health insurance or other factors.

July is recognized as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.

The focus of this is to remind and raise awareness that quality mental health care is for everyone. Mental health issues are common – more than 1 in 5 US adults are affected by a mental illness. For minority groups, access can become an issue for financial reasons, but also due to a lack of providers from one’s racial or ethnic group or stigmas attached with seeking mental health help.

It is important to communicate that help is available to anyone who needs mental health assistance. Culture, community and connection are strong pillars to support and uplift individuals seeking help and learning to live with mental illness. By advocating for more inclusive community spaces and ending the stigmas attached with mental health aid, we can help improve promoting health equity for minority groups who need assistance.

July 4th is Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

July 4 signifies the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776, freeing us from British rule and becoming the United States of America.

On this day, we celebrate this nation and the freedoms we currently have and pride in this country.

In early days, the Fourth of July was marked with concerts, bonfires, parades and the firing of cannons and muskets in celebration.

However, it wasn’t until 1870 when it became a federal holiday. Today, parades, patriotic music and fireworks signify the holiday. All SCCMHA locations will be closed in recognition of Independence Day.

July 14 is International Non-Binary People's Day!

July 14 is recognized around the world as International Non-Binary People’s Day.

Non-binary describes someone who does not identify exclusively as a man or woman, as both a man and a woman, or falling outside either category. Some non-binary people may identify as transgender, but not all do.

Those who identify as non-binary use pronouns such as they/them, xe/xer or any combination of both familiar or unfamiliar pronouns.

The holiday shines a light on those who identify as non-binary and celebrates the diversity and contributions of the community.

It also acknowledges the community to ensure they are seen and respected in society today. It is a celebration of being their true authentic self and empowers those who have come out as being non-binary.
