Shining a Light on Mental Health from the Male Perspective

On Wednesday, May 25, 2022 Friends of the Children-Los Angeles brought together a diverse panel of male mental health professionals and community advocates to share their journeys with mental health.

This authentic and empowering panel discussion explored a viewpoint that isn't always talked about: the role of gender-related social pressures that limit and create barriers to seeking mental health care.

By the end of the conversation, participants walked away with tools to bridge connection and community regarding mental support for Black boys in care.
