    It's needed.

    And not just for black men, but black people in general. I honestly feel like we have a bad habit of sweeping mental health issues under the rug and there is a lack of resources available.

    Its not psychotherapy just to put that out there.....rather a thread for moral support/advice for brehs going through it.....and a common thread for reference.

    Excellent idea. :salute:

    We need a place to gather supportive information, advice, etc for the brehs. It's such a vast topic. We can direct ppl who are struggling with personal issues towards this thread.

    Also, if someone wants needs general advice and wanted to stay anonymous, he/she could PM @The Grendel who could post on their behalf. Just a thought.
