#BlackHistoryMonth represents an opportunity to highlight the disparities within the Black community when it comes to mental health. According to a 2018 survey, 50% of Black adults with serious mental illness did not receive treatment.

We encourage followers to invest in learning about the work being done to address #BlackMentalHealth by inspiring, Black-led organizations.
