Brother Be Well Wellness for Boys and Men of Color

Awareness, resilience,
and HOPE for BMOC

Our audience is boys (ages 13+) and men of color including African American, Native American, Latinx, and Asian and Pacific Islander American, and for those who identify as LGBTQIA+ within these communities.

Rest your hand on your heart. Notice your heartbeat under your palm. Now, celebrate your life.



Our members represent the rich diversity woven through the fabric of our community. Our aim is to steady them amongst challenges and disparities. Like the life-centering rainbow breathing technique, Brother Be Well’s cultural hues blend in harmony where a balance is struck, giving meaning and measure to the wellness journey. A true model of community, our program appreciates the life perspectives and shared experiences of our members, placing brotherhood at the heart. Brother Be Well is a platform for learning and growing, celebrating the rainbow, and supporting individuals who would otherwise be unaware of how to address mental health concerns with strength and resilience.
