Manage Mental Health with these Essential Tips

Mental Health TipsNational Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is in July, a crucial time to spotlight the unique challenges faced by racial and ethnic minorities to manage mental health.

Mental health encompasses our emotional, mental, and social well-being, influencing how we think, feel, and act. The CDC states that fewer than one in every two African American adults got care for mental health. Asian Americans were 60 percent less likely to receive mental health treatment than non-Hispanic Whites. Obstacles for many include a lack of health insurance, less access to treatment, and stigma.

It’s important to be aware of changes in thoughts, behaviors, or moods that disrupt daily life. These could signal a need to reach out to a healthcare provider or a mental health specialist for support. Don’t hesitate to lean on trusted loved ones during these times. Mental illnesses have various causes and can manifest differently in individuals. Risk factors such as substance use, social isolation, biological factors, adverse childhood experiences, and chronic medical conditions can contribute to their development.
