Go off King: get it off your chest! Studies show 5-10% of Black Men suffer from depression, however what is more alarming is the statistics for the suicide rate among Black males has increased by 60%. Why is this?

A first great step is offering a safe space amongst themselves that allow them to be honest when it comes to everyday things such as, fatherhood, marriage, overcoming childhood trauma, manhood, & etc. Highlighting Black men’s mental well-being does not detract from the recognition of that pain, but in fact strengthens the need for all of us to divest from harmful masculine ideals.
