Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

      July is Minority mental health month, a time that we should all bring awareness to the struggles and difficulties that many minority groups face every day. Mental health is not an exclusive issue to one group or another, it is a broad and general statement that includes everyone and should viewed as such with both compassion and understanding of the difficulties individuals face day to day. Minority mental health awareness month is about bringing to the forefront the difficulties many underserved populations face day to day and working to include everyone in the discussion about mental health. The conversation moving forward is about including everyone in improving mental health for the community.

      At Appleseed we are dedicated to including everyone to better help individuals with maintaining their mental health. The Minority groups of America have traditionally been associated with racial or ethnic groups within the United States.  By expanding that definition and making it more inclusive, including anyone from an underserved community, such as those who may identify as LGBQT+, religious groups, and many others, we can broaden our understanding of the needs to address mental health issues of everyone. With counseling, understanding, and crisis services, Appleseed Mental Health strives to be a forerunner in Mental Health and to be an asset to anyone in need of our services. We strive to serve anyone who comes to us in need at Appleseed and look forward to being a part of the future of healthy mental health for everyone.

A letter from our Executive Director...

Dear Appleseed Family,We understand that our services are critical to the overall health and wellbeing of the clients and community we serve. We want to be clear that our services are available telephonically and, if needed, face-to-face. We are also quickly working on additional options for clients to virtually meet with their psychiatrist, counselor, or case manager to ensure that services with us remain uninterrupted.
