TAP SD Mental Health Panel

July 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In honor of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, TAP-SD brings to you our 3rd annual Mental Health Seminar! This year we are hosting a Q&A drop in session featuring some of our very own licensed mental health therapists.

Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, culture, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. Join TAP-SD in breaking down the barriers to mental health. By talking more about mental health and illnesses, we can overcome the stigma and normalize mental health care.

Our licensed mental health therapists:
