According to SAMHSA, “behavioral health treatments are ways of helping people with mental illnesses or substance use disorders”. Surveys of US residents found that communities of color had incidences of mental health issues similar to or less frequent to white residents. However, when Black or Hispanic residents reported having a mental health issue, they were less likely to receive care compared to white residents.
