The Young Black Men, Masculinities, and Mental Health (YBMen) Project

Daphne C. Watkins

YBMen Director: Daphne C. Watkins, Curtis Center Director

Founded and Directed by Professor Daphne C. Watkins, the YBMen Project provides young Black men with a safe place to communicate about their mental health, manhood, and social support. It is an adaptable intervention with proven strategies that have addressed unmet needs among both adolescent and young adult Black males. After the initial pilot intervention at Jackson College in 2014-15, the project was implemented again at Eastern Michigan University (2016-17), Michigan State University (2017-18), Ohio State University (2017-18), Bow Middle School (2018-19), and is currently being adapted for K-12 schools in Washtenaw County in partnership with TRAILS to Wellness.
