In Washington DC at the Substance Abuse and Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) & American Psychological Association (APA) conference focusing on addressing behavioral and mental health disparities experienced by Boys and Men of Color.

Im going to be live blogging throughout today and tomorrow about what takes place at the conference. First and foremost the room is full mostly of researchers. But there are also those from non profit and community based organizations. Though I am here representing Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated as the National Guide Right Chairman I am also here in my role as educator and peer mentor coordinator for my high school.  Interestingly I believe I may be the only high school teacher (or K-12 educator for that matter) in attendance.

Sessions discussed today: Monday, March 9th

I. Gender and Identity: Understanding Boys and Men of Color

II. Profiling, Perceptions and Stereotypes: Impact on Behavior, Services and Interventions

III. Consensus Building

IV. Pathways to Behavioral Health Equity: The Issue of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

V. Changing Social Determinants: Opportunities for Promoting Health Equity

VI. Fatherhood and Fathering: Perceptions in Contemporary Communities of Color

VII. Wrap Up
