Room: Latin American Cultural Center (LACC – 2nd Floor, Southwest Residential Area, above Southwest Café)

A panel discussion examining the ways in which racism and unhealthy masculine norms impact the well-being of men of color and contribute to reinforcing the stigma associated with seeking support for mental health, alcohol and drug abuse and bias-related violence.
We will be exploring these dynamics along with strength-based perspectives on breaking down the barriers to mental health.
