July is Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, also known as BIPOC Mental Health Month. (BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.)
Bebe Moore Campbell was an author and activist. After struggling to find support for her daughter who suffered from mental illness, she became an advocate for mental health care for Black Americans. She died in 2006, and BIPOC Mental Health Month was named for her in 2008.
