BRONX NEWS: Chirlane McCray rolls out mental health program to help black men


The city will partner with fraternities and service organizations to offer more mental health help to black men, First Lady Chirlane McCray said Monday as she rolled out a program dubbed “Brothers Thrive.”


“People often feel more comfortable talking about these topics when they’re among people who look like them, people who they feel some kinship or affinity with,” McCray said. “It’s just easier to relax and know that their words will have meaning and validity and credibility.”


Members of the organizations — Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., and 100 Black Men — will receive mental health first aid training from the city, which they can then use to reach out to those in their community who might be facing challenges.


McCray said she’d seen such challenges in her own home, where her father was emotionally reserved.

De Blasio’s tax returns show he earned 3G, paid G in taxes


“Even on Christmas Day, there just wasn’t much joy in our home,” she said. But after taking a mental health first aid course, she continued, “I realized that my father was probably suffering from depression.”


Deputy Mayor Phil Thompson said black men face “distinct and diverse challenges”— including living a life that he said is often “over-policed,” which can lead to trauma.


“I had a student who spent eight years in the Marines in Iraq, and he said the PTSD was worse where he came from than in Iraq,” Thompson said.


The city previously launched Sisters Thrive, which focuses on black women. McCray was joined by the Rev. Michael Walrond, Congressman Gregory Meeks and representatives from the fraternities and service groups at the announcement Monday.
