Understanding mental health is an excellent way to promote mental health equity as individuals.
You should also educate others about mental health and coping techniques.Share resources with friends, family, neighbors, and the community.
It may be challenging at first, but practicing talking about mental health and using non-stigmatizing language is important.
Learning unconscious biases is also useful practice. Unintentional attitudes, behaviors, and acts that favor or disfavor a person or group.
Equally, we should learn about microaggressions. These are daily verbal or nonverbal exchanges that deliver negative messages to marginalized groups.
Promoting health fairness is not solely the duty of individuals. States, healthcare systems, and educators contribute.
Health educators and communicators should also work to reach minority populations with mental health information and provide free services.
Healthcare systems must screen people for depression and other mental illnesses.
Finally, states and localities must expand community-based mental health care
