Minority Mental Health Month Peer to Peer Self Care Tips Campaign

Partnering for Health Equity Through Peer to Peer Self Care Tips

National Minority Health Month is celebrated every April to learn about the health of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States, raise awareness about health disparities, and promote health equity.  This year’s theme is partnering for health equity.

To celebrate, The Steve Fund’s Youth Advisory Board partnered with Mental Health America’s Collegiate Mental Health Innovations Council and Active Minds’ Student Advisory Committee to share peer-to-peer self care tips every day this month.  Members of the group shared tips that they tell themselves and their peers to build self care into daily life.  We made these tips into 30 social share cards and we’re sharing one every day in April.
