.JULY IS NATIONAL MINORITY MENTAL HEALTH MONTH

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed each July to bring awareness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental illness in the United States. Racial and ethnic minorities often suffer from poor mental health outcomes due to the cultural stigma and lack of access to mental health care services.  Read more about these health disparities and see what you can do to help.

NEK Prosper! envisions a community where everyone is: Mentally Healthy, Well Housed, Financially Secure, Well Nourished, Physically Healthy

Our work to achieve each outcome is done by our Collaborative Action Networks (CANs).
CANs are groups of cross-sector practitioners and individuals who organize around one of the NEK Prosper! community level outcomes, develop and implement action plans to achieve the outcome, and use continuous improvement processes to measure their impact and improve their strategies over time.

NEK Prosper! recognizes and acknowledges the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation as the traditional stewards of this land we occupy.  We acknowledge, appreciate and honor the indigenous people who have been living on, working on and caring for the land from time immemorial.

We recognize that colonialism, racism and the oppression of Native peoples is an ongoing process.  We commit to building our awareness of our present participation.
