A message from our Executive Director

In recognition of Black History Month, it is important to recognize the history of racial disparities in access to mental health services in the U.S. in order to better understand current barriers to care.


The U.S Census of 1840 was the first to include a question about mental health, and the podcast History This Week details the resulting stigma against Black Americans.


Our hope is that in recognizing the past we can strengthen our efforts in improving mental health outcomes and provide culturally competent services to all.


February 17th is National Caregivers Day, and we would like to extend our gratitude for the many people in Anne Arundel County who provide both professional and unpaid care to others.
