July is Minority Health Month
Over the past year and a half, our mental health has been challenged unlike ever before. Mental health conditions do not discriminate by race, color or gender identity.
To support Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, BHS has compiled a library of helpful resources. These resources explore the importance of addressing mental health and emotional wellbeing concerns, ways to stay better connected, and positive habits that build resilience.

Access the Minority Mental Health Month resources on the MyBHS Portal and enter username AU.
