PHILADELPHIA — Behavioral health issues don’t discriminate. But the stigma around asking for help can be a powerful deterrent in some minority communities.
July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, and the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) is committed to ending that stigma by making it as easy as possible to find the level of supports and services you need.
Our Boost Your Mood campaign at DBHIDS.org/boost offers information in English, Spanish and traditional Chinese on resources dedicated to helping all Philadelphians — from phone numbers for direct and immediate care to an anonymous screening to help people understand their needs, to information about specialized care for families, for those responding to trauma and violence, for faith and spiritual leaders, and much more.
