This book is a critical MUST HAVE resource Jesse Pacheco, Marriage & Family Therapist, Los Angeles

Latina feminst mental health activist Dior Vargas wondered:

How do people of color experience mental illness?

This important bilingual mental health photo book that focuses solely on people of color.

To find answers she interviewed people of color across the country. She asked about access to mental health services, getting culturally competent care, people living with a mental health diagnosis.

People responded with compelling stories full of truth and insight. They report on what helps them survive, how to navigate family and cultural beliefs about mental illness, and share their triumphs.

In the book Kachi states "More representation of people who look like me who also deal with mental illness is important." "Tener más representación de personas que se parecen a mí y que también lidian con enfermedades mentales es crucial."

Written in English and Spanish, The Color of My Mind shares stories of living with mental illness while living in a variety of cultural and linguistic communities.

They are a diverse group: queer and straight, Latinx, indigineous, Black, Asian-American and mixed race, and speak multiple languges. They work in a wide range of fields from artist to business professionals.


Color of My Mind helps us see the vulnerability and strength of people of color living with mental health issues. - Elisa Camahort Page, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author

Review:

"This book is an essential look at mental health and how it impacts people of color -- a too often overlooked reality that Vargas shines a powerful light upon." Kelly Jensen, Editor and Author

"As a Mental Health Professional, I'm always trying to connect with someone's humanity and their story. And I believe it's part of my job to help my client connect to that part of themselves as well. This book is a critical and MUST-HAVE resource for therapists, especially white therapists, to help us deepen our understanding of our client's experiences. Read it, share it, and help someone to feel seen." Jesse Pacheco, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA


"The Color of My Mind offers real-time, human perspectives from people of color who live day to day with mental illness. Vargas' Photo project highlights our ability to thrive through our collective healing." Jose Rivera Jr, Latinx recording and visual artist

"The Color of My Mind is an eminently necessary book. For too long, discussion, depiction, and treatment of mental illness have left out people of color and their experiences, and this book is a crucial corrective to that wrong." Tochi Onyebuchi, Author

"There is a well-worn saying that 'you cannot be what you cannot see.' I take it a step further and say you cannot respect what you cannot see. You cannot understand what you cannot see. And you cannot include what you cannot see. Dior Vargas's The Color of My Mind helps us see the vulnerability and strength of people of color living with mental health issues. By including the perspectives represented in this book, Vargas helps us see, respect, understand, and include...helping build the very foundation of a more empathetic society." Elisa Camahort Page, Entrepreneur, Speaker and Author

Reading Dior Vargas' photo essay The Color of My Mind, was like receiving a warm hug from a friend whose embrace whispers "you are not alone." - Candace J. Dunkley, Spoken Word Poet
