           RICHMOND, VA (USA) – 20 January 2016 --     How does racism, lack of real life options, poverty, lack of equal access to physical and mental health resources and support services, unemployment, and mass incarceration impact on the emotional health of Men and Boys of Color?   Are the unique challenges that Men and Boys of Color face robbing them of their emotional freedom?  Do Men and Boys of Color need a safe haven to freely express their wide range of emotions – particularly, the natural reaction to emotional and physical distress?   R. Devin Beverly, Ph.D., health and forensic psychologist and Men’s Issues Thought Leader, will weigh in on these and other questions as a featured speaker at the “Men And Boys Of Color Global Community Emotional Health” Teleconference scheduled for Sunday, 24 January 2016 at 10:00 A.M. (USA – New York Time) and 3:00 P.M. (USA – New York Time).   The teleconference call dial-in number is  712-775-7031 and the access code is: 803 828.  


            Dr. Beverly is moving the African American community to rethink how it is raising its Sons, healing their deep emotional wounds, and dissipating their anger through a groundbreaking DVD entitled, “Angry Black Males:  The Misunderstood Population”.  At the same time, Dr. Beverly is working to move the world to rethink how it can improve the manner in which it can positively interact with Men and Boys of Color and to understand why it is necessary.   Dr. Beverly’s work which was prominently featured in the Spring  2014 issue of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®, an international quarterly Fatherhood and Men’s Issues Journal, has been heralded as one of the key “pieces of the puzzle” to keeping not just African American boys and young adolescent males – but all of our Sons --  out of the “school-to-prison pipeline”.  A mental and behavioral health professional whose professional services encompasses, among other things, clinical leadership, consultation, organizational analysis, and interagency relations, Dr. Beverly deals with violence, alcoholism and other forms of chemical dependence, re-entry and other correctional programming, forensic psychology, and anti-social conduct.


        The “Men And Boys Of Color Global Community Emotional Health” Teleconference is being convened in observance of “January 2016: Men And Boys Emotional Freedom Month” which is the brainchild of the USA International Men’s Day Team in response to the alarmingly rising suicide rates for Men and Boys and in alignment with the theme for 2016 International Men’s Day  -- “Talk About Male Suicide”..   “January 2016:  Men And Boys Emotional Freedom Month” calls attention to, among other things, the need for the creation of safe havens for Men and Boys to freely express their wide range of emotions  and greater and equal access to mental health resources and support for services for our sons, fathers, husbands, grandfathers, great grandfathers, uncles, fiancées, brothers, cousins, nephews, co-workers, and neighbors.
