About BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month

Established in 2008, BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month is officially designated as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.

Named for American author, journalist and advocate Bebe Moore Campbell, whose work shed light on the mental health needs of the black community and other minority communities, BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month was created to enhance public awareness of mental illness, especially among minority communities.

Important goals of BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month include increasing awareness of the unique mental health struggles facing underrepresented groups in the U.S. and providing communities of color with culturally competent mental health resources.

Please visit the BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month resource webpage for more information and to view available resources. You are encouraged to participate in as many programs as you like.

This month—and every month—stay happy, healthy and well.

Well regards,

Becci Menghini
Vice Chancellor, Human Resources and Equal Opportunity and Compliance
