Fellonte Misher, MSW, Co-Founder and Program Director Fellonte Misher has supported young men in his community to consider life outside of gangs for many years. He is a third grade teacher at Tubman Elementary School and is an athlete who is dedicated to physical health and reflection. Fellonte is a Washington DC Native who spent four years playing collegiate football at Old Dominion University and then went on to play professionally in Ancona, Italy and in Krakow, Poland. Through In The Streets, he will continue to interrupt the community norms that dissuade young black men from believing that college is a possibility. Fellonte’s goal is to make the young people in his community feel a sense of opportunity to build their life somewhere other than in the streets. As of now, black men are regularly shot and killed in this community due to gang violence that results from the lack of economic opportunity and the lack of emotional support and consistent role models available to these young men. Fellonte is a big brother to so many members of the community.

Are you ready to start your own podcast?! Several months ago I invited a limited number of therapists to take part in my first podcasting workshop... How To Start A Podcast For Mental Health Care Workers. And if I do say so myself, it was a hit!

Yep, because of the podcast, I've been able to replace the salary I was making from a full time job at a county clinic in the Bay Area. In addition, it's been an incredible way to meet amazing therapists from all over the world, learn how others are working in the trauma field, and it's been a fantastic and never-ending source of inspiration for myself!

hey, thanks for the pod. the volume is Really discrepant. from the host to the visitor. it's like a 700% difference- i can't hear the interviewer at all and keep the guest at a reasonable level. improving this sound issue would help a lot. and cutting the guest off mid-sentence with an ad was pretty weird. sorry for the poorer review, hope things improve for future episodes!

An excellent source of information, not just for therapists, or patients but also for relatives. I can only imagine what trauma patients must suffer through to get help. This podcast provides new insights with every episode. I'm very glad I found Guys podcast a few months ago and enables me to understand my girlfriends daily suffering better and be a better support for her. Thanks you!
