S1 E8 Unlock Black Men’s Healing Power in Safe Community Spaces | Dr. Obari Cartman | Balin A. Durr, MD

Typically, men don’t want help for mental health problems due to stigma; and for those who want help, it can take months to get in to be seen by someone. So, what are they supposed to do in the meantime?

With my special guest, Dr. Obari Cartman, PhD, a psychologist and author, we discuss:
• taking therapy to black men where they are in the community
• transforming their familiar, safe spaces to healing spaces that engage them more deeply, facilitate their healing, and connect them with others
• utilizing the familiar in order to remember their Infinite potential, regain pride in their racial and cultural identities, recover their power, and demonstrate their innate brilliance.
