The Lunch Hour – Internal and External Barriers to Black Men Exploring their Mental Health

June 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for an insightful one-hour webinar as we delve into the critical topic of “Internal and External Barriers to Black Men Exploring their Mental Health.” This webinar brings together a panel of experts, including Kyle Carter and Dr. Jonathan Harold to explore the multifaceted challenges that hinder Black men from prioritizing their mental well-being.

The discussion will confront the stigma surrounding Black men’s mental health, acknowledging both internalized and external pressures that prevent open dialogue and seeking support. Panelists will dissect societal factors such as historical trauma, systemic racism, stereotypes, and cultural norms, which intersect to create unique barriers for Black men in accessing mental health care, culminating with proactive strategies and interventions to dismantle these barriers and foster a supportive environment for Black men’s mental health. Central to the discussion is the imperative of nurturing the next generation of Black male leaders. By equipping youth with the tools to recognize and address mental health challenges early on, we can break the cycle of stigma and empower future leaders to prioritize their well-being. Panelists will explore innovative approaches and mentorship programs aimed at building resilience, fostering emotional intelligence, and promoting self-care practices among Black youth. Whether you’re a mental health professional, community leader, educator, or ally committed to advancing equity and well-being, this webinar offers invaluable perspectives and actionable steps to support Black men’s mental health and cultivate a generation of resilient and empowered leaders.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a transformative conversation that transcends barriers and paves the way for a more inclusive and supportive future for Black men’s mental health and leadership.
