About the Event: On Thursday, January 25, from 6 to 8 pm EST, Temple University will play host to a groundbreaking event – “Real Men Real Talk.” Located at 1509 Cecil B Moore Ave. in Philadelphia, this gathering aims to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health within the black community, particularly among men.
The event promises an empowering evening of open, honest conversations on mental wellness and the everyday stresses faced by men.
This event deviates from the traditional speaker-led conferences by prioritizing raw and genuine conversations over frills. The goal is to create a safe space where participants can share their experiences, discuss challenges, and support one another without judgment.
The theme, “It’s Time to Take The Mask Off,” encapsulates the essence of the event. Breaking away from societal expectations and confronting mental health challenges head-on is crucial to fostering a healthier and more connected community. The organizers believe that dismantling the stigma around mental health starts with candid conversations and mutual support.
The event is not just an opportunity for personal growth; it’s a chance to contribute to a broader movement. By attending and spreading the word using hashtags like #RealMenRealTalk, #AAWellness, #MentalWellness, and #MoreThanAWalk, participants can actively contribute to breaking the stigma surrounding mental health in the black community.
While the focus is on mental wellness, the event also emphasizes the importance of community and shared experiences. It’s a call to action for everyone, regardless of background, to come together and make a difference.
Attendees are reminded to register early to secure their spot for this transformative evening. Although Eventbrite’s fee is nonrefundable, those who need assistance can contact the organizer directly to discuss refund options.
This event is more than just a gathering; it’s a movement towards building a healthier, more connected community. “Real Men Real Talk” invites you to be part of this transformative experience and contribute to breaking the stigma of mental health amongst black men. Together, we can uplift and support each other, fostering a community where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.
