American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: facebook.com/events/s/a-realconvo-with-black-men-abo/392319132765634/ We need to talk about the intersection between Black men, mental health, and suicide prevention – but first, we need to listen. This special Facebook Live conversation, moderated by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Senior Vice President of Research, Dr. Jill Harkavy-Friedman, along with panelists Doug Middleton, David Threatt, and Phillip Tyler, will consider aspects and questions reflective of the Black male experience in relation to mental health. What cultural considerations are involved when it comes to seeking or offering help? How do Black men talk about mental health with their friends and family? What resources are available when someone needs support? How can we encourage openness and help-seeking? These questions will be discussed from the unique perspectives of someone who has lost a son to suicide; someone who has lost his best friend; and someone with his own lived experience of a suicide attempt. We hope you’ll join us for this enlightening conversation that will shed light on this important topic. #BlackMentalHealth #BlackMen #AmericanFoundationforSuicidePrevention #mentalhealth #suicidalawareness

Reimagining Death Monday, July 18 8:00am-9:00am PDT FREE A deep cross-cultural exploration of our ancestor's views of death followed by a meditation and an invitation to reimagine our relation to our death, death itself, and how it can affect living life. "Death is the only friend who has been by my side the whole time- a true witness to my life." In many earth-based cultures around the world, we see that death is a living entity or spirit that guides us- it has an essence. In some cases, like the Mexica-Azteca, there is no word for death, but rather, we transcend and go back to the fountain of life. This voyage can be seen from Greeks to Celtics, to Mayans. Our earthly ancestors have gifted us a blueprint for death and how we can relate to it so we don't have to suffer when it is time- however, and whenever that is. Join us, on this journey of reimagining Death. This is the introduction to a cohort that will begin on October 1. Mariana Bandera is an anthropologist and archaeologist who has an affinity to ceremonies around the world that help preserve wisdom and remembrance. Under the guidance of her
