Annually, BMHA provides over 600 referrals to individuals seeking licensed culturally-competent clinicians for behavioral and mental health treatment.
Over 100 behavioral and mental health professionals receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through BMHA each year. Now, our training division has seminars offering CEUs at a discount for BMHA members.
BMHA provides meaningful, engaging and empowering monthly programming educating Black people on their ability to heal both individually and as a community. Our events empower participants to seek additional help and resources.
BIPOC Mental Health Month
Formally recognized in May 2008, National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed each July and was created by Bebe Moore Campbell to bring awareness to the unique struggles that underrepresented groups face regarding mental illness in the United States.
As a Black female author, journalist, teacher, and mental health advocate, Campbell was committed to making others aware of the special issues and challenges that the Black community and other underserved communities faced in addressing their mental health needs and seeking treatment.
