According to the National Institute of Mental Health, The National Healthcare Disparities Report 2012 reported that “health care quality and access are suboptimal, especially for minority and low-income groups [and while] overall quality is improving, access is getting worse, and disparities are not changing.” Similarly, disparities in mental health care across race and ethnicity, geographic regions, and socioeconomic domains continue. Mind Management Institute, Inc. is committed to normalizing mental health assistance and building access to services that empower the community to manage their mental health through mental wellness.
The Annual Minority Mental Health Awareness Fair provides access to 25+ wellness vendors, open paneled discussions on mental, emotional, and physical wellness with clinical professionals within the community. We offer free yoga and massages by certified professionals to help expose the community to the power of wellness, evoke mental healthiness, and fight mental health stigma. This year, Mind Management Institute is implementing more community programming and expanding upon our annual Minority Mental Health Awareness Fair to support this year’s theme of Silencing Stigma in Solidarity.
