CLASP Celebrates Mental Health Awareness Month 

May 08, 2020

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. CLASP’s mental health work centers on systems and policy change with an explicit focus on how race and ethnicity affect a person’s interactions with systems and services. Throughout the month, we’ll explore the role of historical and cultural trauma, the importance of lived experience, how to create more equitable access to mental health resources, and the importance of access to a full continuum of mental health care. We hope you’ll help us reimagine what the mental and behavioral health systems could look like to better serve people living in households with low income.

Here’s a rundown of our activities:
