July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Fast facts from NAMI to consider:


- Individuals with mental health conditions face an average 10-year delay between experiencing symptoms and engaging in treatment


- Even though most people can experience recovery, less than half of the adults in the U.S. who need mental health services and supports get the help they need


- African Americans and Hispanic Americans used mental health services at about half the rate of whites in the past year, and Asian Americans at about one-third the rate
