n 2008, the U.S. House of Representatives proclaimed July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.  The month aims to improve access to mental health treatment and services for multicultural communities through increased public awareness.  Since 2008, individuals and organizations around the country have joined NAMI in celebrating the month and increasing awareness.

Governor Hickenlooper and Mayor Hancock have both issued proclamations that July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
