Resource: In the Wake of Violence–Mental Health in African American Youth (Video)

The University of Minnesota’s Trauma Recovery Project has created a new video featuring panel discussions from two events held in the past year. The7-minute video, created by the UMN Extension Children, Youth & Family Consortium (CYFC), was compiled from speakers at two Minneapolis events (February and May 2016) sponsored by the Trauma Recovery Project Behavioral Health Practitioners Workgroup.

The events were held to (1) create a space to process the unchecked violence against black men in and outside of the community, (2) share experiences and perspectives on how black men are making a positive impact in society, and (3) explore what others’ roles are in the wake of violence and character assassination attempts on black men.
