Represent Recovery Initiative
Our Represent Recovery Initiative calls for a shift in the way we view mental health in diverse cultural communities. It aims to serve members of underrepresented communities while centering their voices in the overall mental health movement. Visibility and representation matter both in mental health treatment and mental health awareness activism.
Our Latino community page includes resources and perspectives of Latino/a/x individuals and families affected by mental illness.
Stay connected as we roll out resource pages for various underrepresented communities.
Educate. Engage. Empower.
