IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) facilitates a Global Dialogue on Fatherhood and Men's Issues which explores and addresses key challenges -- mental and physical health, real-life options, poverty, hunger, homelessness, Fatherlessness, parental alienation, mass incarceration, religious and ethnic intolerance -- which prevent Men and Boys from living healthier, purpose-driven, and longer lives.
This month, The Style Gent and I are partnering with International Men's Day U.S Coordinator, Ms. Diane Sears to launch a call to action for women to support the emotional and mental well-being of the males in their lives.
This year's International Men's Day theme is " keeping men and boys safe." Through this call to action, we want boys and men to feel safe to share their thoughts and feelings. We don't want them to suffer alone.
We're asking moms, wives, daughters, aunts, girlfriends, stepmoms, grandmothers, etc to take the pledge to create a safe space for boys and men to talk and share.
This initiative is personal to me as I am supporting my husband (a 3 time Iraqi war veteran) through his struggles with PTSD.
I'm reaching out to you to share this initiative, as well as any resources you may have to support boys and men.
