Join NAMI California at the California State Capitol in Sacramento to help us launch Minority Mental Health Awareness Month!
Let's educate policy makers and advocate for increased access to culturally appropriate and client-centered services. By advocating and sharing our lived experiences, we can eliminate stigma and provide better mental health information to underserved communities.
Bebe Moore Campbell was an accomplished author, advocate, co-founder of NAMI Urban Los Angeles and national spokesperson, who passed away in November 2006. Campbell advocated for mental health education and support for individuals from diverse communities.
In May 2008, the US House of Representatives proclaimed July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. The resolution, sponsored by Rep. Albert Wynn (D-MD) and co-sponsored by a large bipartisan group, was passed in recognition that:
• Improved access to mental health treatment and services and public awareness of mental illness are of paramount importance; and
• An appropriate month should be recognized as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month to enhance public awareness of mental illness and mental illness among minorities.
NAMI California honors Ms. Campbell’s legacy every year with our annual Bebe Moore Campbell Capitol Advocacy Day in Sacramento.
