Good Morning! Because there are so many things happening every single second of the day, We decided to create a new series called In Case You Missed It where we post two News stories and some other information that we think some of our fellow Mogul Friends would like to be informed about:

Did You Know?
This leads us to this, July is Minority Mental Health Month, Mental Health is a general taboo subject and because of the stigma of mental illness, the cost of help, and poor quality many minorities do not receive the help they need. The National Alliance on Mental Health is trying to change that, looking for a way to get involved? On July 21st, @WitnessesToHunger will be having a #WitnessChat to talk about the issues facing Minorities and Mental Health.
Even though we are a day late, we'd like to say, Happy Non-Binary Day! Check back next week for more news and updates!
