The Men’s Wellness Council was developed as a space for African American men to explore the meaning of health and wellness and identify areas of action in their community. The Council proved to be a model for fostering transformative social connections and mentorship across generations and resulted in a documentary film to promote community dialogue.
Funded by the Wisconsin Partnership Program, the initiative is a partnership between Walnut Way, the YMCA Northside, UWM Zilber School of Public Health, Center for Urban Population Health, and UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity. Additionally, we would like to thank Darren Cole and Amy Harley for their efforts in making this project a success.
We thank all of the men that dedicated their time and voices for creating an authentic space of healing and peace.
