Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) are less likely to receive treatment for mental health or substance use disorders (SUDs).[1] In 2020, 5.7% of Asian Americans, 9.4% of Black people or African Americans, and 10.7% of Hispanic or Latinx people received mental health services, compared to 21% of White people.[1] Several factors contribute to BIPOC being less likely to receive treatment for mental health or SUDs, including: a lack of insurance or underinsurance, mental illness stigma, a lack of diversity and cultural competence among mental healthcare providers, language barriers and distrust in the healthcare system.[2]

For July BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month, join us as we explore different roles in behavioral healthcare and overcoming stigma to help BIPOC feel more knowledgeable and comfortable about reaching out for help.
