Chicago/ Community Resources
July is BIPOC/Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. We are living in a time of great disruption, uncertainty, and challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic, racial violence, political upheaval, and economic precarity affect black women and men in different ways, often impacting our mental health or the mental health of those whom we love. The African American Cultural Center recognizes the importance of nurturing Black Mental Health and wants to help shatter the silences that keep us isolated and distant from the help we all need. Please check out the resources below and connect to our weekly programming because BLACK MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS.
