Mental health care needs are increasingly a focus of conversations from government chambers to kitchen tables. Still, we know that racial disparities persist among people who need professional support.
The Vitals™ team came together in 2017 to help create safer communities and positive outcomes for every person. If you’ve worried about staying safe in a mental health crisis, or keeping another person safe, we understand. And as we reflect on July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, we remember our mission to provide safer interactions. Vitals™ exists to create calm in the most chaotic moments of crisis.
Often, people who identify as BIPOC have a higher risk of mental health challenges and generational trauma. They also face barriers to access resources for the care they need. If you are feeling hopeless, or your work or personal life feels like too much, help is available. This guide provides a wide variety of BIPOC mental health resources.
And the Vitals™ App is here for anyone with a mental health condition or other vulnerability who worries about staying safe at home and in the world. We offer the only living digital medical ID that is shared in real time with first responders.
Vitals™ subscribers always have full control over the information to include in their profile, whether disabilities, invisible conditions, triggers, de-escalation techniques, medications, emergency contact information, or anything else.
“What I like most about Vitals™ is I have the ability to control what goes in my profile,” says Anna R, a self-advocate user. “I can put in as little or as much information as I like. What I know is going to help me.”
