WHY MENTAL HEALTH CONVERSATIONS?
Since May of 2020, Our STR8 Mental initiative has connected over 2,000 black men to mental health specialists. We curate safe spaces for Black Men to fellowship, grow, and heal together while unpacking various mental health topics led by black male therapists and/or mental health advocates. Through STR8 Mental, we use our data to help companies, brands, and organizations connect to black men to mental health education and healing.
