RMRT is Empowering Men of Color in Central Ohio on Thursday, July 18, 2024


Press Release for 2024 Real Men Real Talk Summit

Our Mission

An opportunity to gather Black men to have safe conversations regarding mental health, drug misuse, and drug addiction.

Because mental health is affecting the African American community at an alarming rate the NAAMWA created the Real Men Real Talk (RMRT) community conversation series and annual conference to reduce the stigma that mental health doesn’t exist in the black community and provide safe spaces for disclosure and healing. RMRT provides men the opportunity to express their feelings, be vulnerable, talk about their family, wellbeing, family life and lifestyle overall. RMRT has been effective in addressing issues such as opioid addiction, trauma, violence and social isolation. The NAAMWA has also successfully established a network of mental health professionals and agencies who have committed to support our attendants with mental health services.  We also have a 24/7 monitored mental health hotline where someone in need can reach our agency for assistance at any time.
