February is Black History Month and this year’s theme is Black Health and Wellness. The theme aims to highlight the contributions of Black scholars and practitioners in the medical field while also recognizing how consistently the Black community has been underserved medically in the United States.
In reflecting on the meaning of Black Health and Wellness this month, we ask you not to forget that mental health is health. It too should be a part of the conversation, as it is at Mental Health America.
Take this month to learn, share and grow. Black History Month may happen just once per year, but the knowledge you take from it should not be confined to February.
