EPISODE 4: MEN/BOYS WITH RB ALVERNA
RB Alverna, founder of The Academy 365, a nonprofit organization that does wrap around mentorship for black boys, talks with Christina about mental health and boys. Christina intentionally wanted to pull out this area, as there continues to be a difference regarding who is seeking mental health support and the stigma around men and mental health. Christina and RB talk about toxic masculinity, the barriers that persist within the communications with boys and their mental health, as well as what changes need to occur so our young men can thrive.
