🌟 July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month! 🌟 Mental health is a critical aspect of overall well-being, yet it often remains overlooked within racial and ethnic minority groups. This lack of conversation can increase the challenges these communities face in accessing mental health resources and support.

During this month, let's spread awareness on the disparities and obstacles that minority individuals encounter when seeking mental health care.

🤝 Join us in breaking the stigma and promoting open dialogue about mental health in all communities. We stand committed to providing a safe space for our members to discuss and prioritize their mental well-being. Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, and we encourage everyone to take steps towards better mental health! 💚 #minoritymentalhealth #prioritizementalhealth
Celebrating Juneteenth! Juneteenth is a holiday that gives us the chance to reflect on history and the ongoing work being done towards equality. 

There’s an urgent need to confront health inequities and medicine as an institute is taking a closer look at the root cause: structural racism. The CDC and the AMA have declared racism as an public health crisis because it is a barrier to health equity and optimal medical care. A 2016 study from the University of Virginia found 50% of medical students and residents believed that Black people are more tolerant of pain, a myth perpetuated during the slavery era. 

Racism is a public health threat, and the path to becoming anti-racist can assist in delivering more optimal care. As large and small steps are being made, they bring us closer toward health equity. Happy Juneteenth!
As Black Women’s History month comes to a close, we want to continue to remember the black female voices that have paved the way for black female scientists today

Dr. Marie Daly was the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in chemistry and her research led to discoveries such as the damaging effects of cigarette smoking on the lungs.

Today, this revolutionary scientist has faded from memory but BBMTA has chosen to honor her legacy in the month of April!


Don't hesitate to apply!
