Did you know…”Minorities are less likely to receive diagnosis and treatment for their mental illness, have less access to mental health services, and often receive a poorer quality of mental health care?” – hhs.gov

To bring awareness to these disparities within the Hampton Roads Community the ARDX Foundation will be hosting an event in July to kick-off the National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
