The Minority Psychology Network knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Due to the stigma associated with people of color and mental health our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch The Minority Psychology Network.
The Minority Psychology Network strives to reduce the stigma that surrounds Mental Health within minority communities by spreading education about how stigma is formed and maintained culturally and environmentally. Through this Network, we aim to facilitate accessibility to Mental health and culturally relatable personnel for members in the minority communities.
We believe in building a future in which stigma does not prevent members of minority groups from seeking the help they so desperately need. To accomplish this, the current social and psychological barriers must be abolished. This can be accomplished by spreading education and awareness across these groups in order to understand that mental health is not only an individual but also a communal issue. This awareness will subsequently lead to acceptance and understanding of mental health issues by the individuals suffering as well as their families.
Knowledge is power and power can be attained through awareness. The Minority Psychology Network will spread awareness and therefore empower the individuals belonging to various minority groups. Awareness can be attained through education, workshops, trainings, speaking engagements, and partnerships with entities in the field. Together, we can help these groups regain the confidence, awareness, and knowledge to take back their lives and no longer live in the shadows of social oppression caused by their mental health condition.
