In May 2008 July was proclaimed “Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month”. Bebe Moore Campbell was an accomplished author and activist. This month is dedicated to increasing public awareness of mental illness and mental illness in minority communities.
Chrissie K has learned that mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of and mental health is just as important as physical health. She hopes to increase awareness and erase the stigma, especially in the Black community, by sharing her own story and encouraging others to share theirs. Chrissie K started Speak Away the Stigma last year, to promote mental illness awareness.
