Let's be #mindPHL together

A joint project of the City of Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross, #mindPHL shares information about free mental health resources and programs.

July is:

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Members of minority groups are at a higher risk of experiencing the burden of mental health issues than others. Throughout July, the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) will be shining a light on the unique challenges that members of various minority groups sometimes face and providing resources for support. Check out their list of Culturally and Racially Sensitive Mental Health Treatment Services Resources in Philadelphia and beyond.

Disability Pride Month

With more than 160 million Americans living with a disability or chronic disease, Disability Pride Month is an important time to honor the unique contribution of each person in the disability community.  Celebrate Disability Pride Month by checking out Philadelphia Intellectual disAbility Services (IDS), which is dedicated to promoting respect and dignity, ending stigma, and providing resources and services to support of people with disabilities and their families.

International Self-Care Day

Self-care is a vital aspect of whole-person health, and taking stock of your emotional and mental well-being is just as important as being in tune with your physical health. One great way to observe International Self-Care Day on July 24 is by completing an online mental health check-up or finding an in-person community screening.
