Mental Health Advocate Bebe Moore Campbell

District funds committed to date:
In recognition of National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month (July), we are spotlighting the American author and journalist Bebe Moore Campbell, who developed the monthly designation. Ms. Campbell, who died in 2006,  famously said: 
"We need a national campaign to de-stigmatize mental illness, especially one targeted toward African Americans ... It's not shameful to have a mental illness. Get treatment. Recovery is possible."
