Bring Change to Mind “Bring Change to Mind grew out of an unyielding determination to end
discrimination surrounding mental health. We recognize that mental health does not live in a vacuum and that many environmental factors including systemic racism and white supremacy can have devastating impacts on the mental health of communities of color. The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and Dion Johnson have elicited justified mourning and outrage from many around the nation. We wholeheartedly stand with Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities to oppose racism and bigotry.”
