Quality prevention efforts meet men and boys where they are, in their communities, to promote resilience across generations. To accomplish this, this web conference will focus on community-level, community-driven solutions that promote mental health and well-being for men and boys.  Based on a detailed landscape report on the current state of mental health of American boys and men, Making Connections for Mental Health and Well-Being among Men and Boys in the U.S., guests and participants will examine challenges and solutions to prevent sexual and domestic violence that also support the fundamental well-being of men and boys. Join the conversation to

  • Engage in a candid discussion around the links between preventing trauma and sexual and domestic violence
  • List strategies relevant for efforts focused on men of color, trauma and sexual and domestic violence
  • Identify tools and resources to support ongoing innovative partnerships between efforts focused on sexual and domestic violence prevention and efforts preventing trauma in communities of color.
