MULTICULTURAL OUTREACH

NAMI GREATER CLEVELAND OBSERVES:

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month press release.

NAMI Greater Cleveland offers outreach and support programs to empower
individuals and their families affected by mental illness.

NAMI Latino Multicultural Action Center from Amanda Wang on Vimeo.

NAMI's Multicultural Outreach Program targets the mental health needs of the
African American and Hispanic/Latino communities. Many individuals may suffer needlessly
from mental disorders such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, panic/anxiety,
obsessive compulsive disorder(OCD) and bipolar disorder.

Mental illness is not uncommon and is as diverse as the people who have it.
The percentage of African Americans receiving needed care is only half that of whites
and only 24% of Hispanics/Latinos with depression and anxiety receive appropriate care
compared with 34% of whites with the same diagnosis.

NAMI can Help. We provide culturally specific programs and services directed and sensitized
to the needs and concerns of African American and Hispanic/Latino Communites.

Easy Access to Services
Our services are located withing the community. Many are within walking
distance and on bus routes.

books, pamphlets, videos and
other resource materials.
