July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.

In May of 2008, the US House of Representatives announced July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, calling for a national campaign to destigmatize mental illness, particularly within minority communities.

Bebe Moore Campbell was an author, advocate, co-founder of The National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI), Urban Los Angeles and national spokesperson, who passed away in November 2006. She received NAMI's 2003 Outstanding Media Award for Literature. Campbell advocated for mental health education and support among individuals of diverse communities.

Ms. Campbell impressed upon the world the truth that, "It's not shameful to have a mental illness. Get treatment. Recovery is possible."

How the Cult of Sleep-Deprivation Affects Work
and Mental Health

Undoubtedly, you have heard that getting enough sleep is critical for both physical and psychological health. This cannot be stressed enough! Regularly experiencing a full night of good sleep is one of the foundational elements of the mental health wheel.

Yet, we still have influences in our culture which maintain that working long hours--at the expense of sleep--is a path to assured success. Those over the age of 30 likely grew up regaled with stories of high-achievers, who bragged about getting by on four hours of sleep a night. One still hears this boast.

Fortunately, research has revealed the destructive nature of this cultural habit, and efforts are underway to dispel its appeal.

This podcast from The Anxious Achiever (curated by Harvard Business Review) examines the effects of sleep deprivation on your mental health--and your career.

Have a listen...and take care of yourself.
