Making Connections

Listen to the participants of Making Connections for Mental Health and Well-Being Among Men and Boys talk about why it is important to focus on men and boys.

About Us

Our community outreach workers and researchers have partnered with United Women of East African Support Team to develop a comprehensive, culturally-competent, community-level plan of mental health strategies and resources for East African refugee males between the ages of 16 and 25 years. This group often suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression while taking on head-of-household stress and encountering risky behavior in their peer group. Our goal is to keep these young men from falling into a life cycle of prison, drugs, and gangs — including religious extremist organizations.
