AFSP Supports Diverse Communities

July is Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Sandra Goldmeer, the area director of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for the Capital Region talks with us about how the AFSP ensures that the resources provided are culturally relevant and equitable available for BIPOC. AFSP’s extensive outreach includes small videos, podcasts, social graphics, LGBTQ focus groups, webinars, School District Model Policy, Talk Saves Lives, and multiple events throughout the year. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is opening conversations to discuss our mental health the way that we discuss our physical health. Interview by HMM correspondent Aileen Javier.
