The Summit Wellness Group offers a comprehensive list of 61 resources for BIPOC seeking information about and/or help for a range of addiction and mental health issues. It is no secret that the mental health of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) is disproportionately affected compared to that of their white counterparts. According to Mental Health America, 17% of Black people and 23% of Native Americans live with a mental illness. People who identify as two or more races are more likely to report mental illness than any other racial or ethnic group. This is because, along with the internal struggles and trauma that many people face, BIPOC must also withstand racial injustices that intersect every facet of their lives. These hardships that fall on entire communities have detrimental effects on mental health and contribute to increased anxiety, depression, and stress.
