191: Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

On this week’s episode we’re joined by two professionals from Truman Medical Centers/University Health as we head into Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. We discuss some of the barriers to care marginalized communities face, and the importance of creating community connections to share their resources and services offered at TMC’s behavioral health programs. As a hospital serving Kansas City’s historically diverse East Side, TMC’s certified mental health professionals are experienced with mental healthcare for Black and brown communities.

Shawn Holland is a licensed professional counselor for Truman Behavioral Health, working in Recovery Health Services, a division of Behavioral Health dedicated to treating clients with a dual diagnosis of behavioral health issue and substance abuse disorder. Niki Lee Donawa, Chief Community Relations Officer, heads up the outreach programs.
