Bridging Mental Health
We need a bridge w/ mental health access for BIPOC, I propose a community-engaged campaign. Collaborating w/ stakeholders, utilizing places like beauty & barbershops & other gathering spots for canvassing, working as inroads connecting people w/ mental health care. Consistent campaign is crucial for diversifying the healthcare sector because representation matters (https://shorturl.at/imNPZ).
