About Us

Our Vision

There is stigma associated with mental health care in the black community that has become generationally rooted. That stigma has led to large health disparities and decreased utilization of mental health resources.

Our Mission

Identify and reduce the stigmas men of color associate with seeking help for depression, anger, grief, trauma and stress. Identify resources available in the community. Teach methods of coping, and how to address the stress experienced by themselves and their brother.

Our Goals

Stop the stigma, Address the stress.

Along with Licensed Clinical Social Worker Charlotte Jenkins, and Domestic Violence Professional Yvas Witherspoon, Brother Let’s Talk began.
