Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. National Multicultural Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 2008 to start changing this.
In July, NAMI Dane County, Alpha Kappa Alpha and the UW-Dept. of Psychology will host a viewing of the film "Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw" with a Q&A afterwards. The Q&A will be led by NAMI Dane County board member, Dr. Diane Gooding, and our Field Placement Student, Blair Karlsson. Please spread the word; we hope to see you there!
