Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month


– Groups are that are often marginalized anyway in our society don’t wanna put one more
thing on their plate. – Generally, minorities have
not had a good experience in the healthcare
system, and so going back can take a lot of courage and effort. – It’s a personal
weakness, it’s the person, the individual’s fault why
they have this problem. So that leads a lot of people to kind of hide it,
sweep it under the rug. – We really try to meet
patients where they’re at. When they’re at the doctor’s office, this might be a more
comfortable place for them than a mental health center. That helps decrease stigma in that, when you go to the doctor,
you talk about your heart, you talk about your lungs,
and you also talk about what’s going on in your brain. – In our situation, with the adolescents, we’re not asking for money, we’re not asking for immigration status. You need help, we’re
gonna provide the help, and we’re gonna make sure that you get the best possible help that you can get.
