We are a group of passionate individuals wanting to build a supportive and empowering community for males and their loved ones that promotes their progression towards optimal health and wellness.
We take a holistic perspective to health and well-being that fosters social, emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and environmental protective factors. Our approaches focus on connections; that is connecting with oneself and with others.
We seek to build a culture of wellness by not exclusively focusing on a particular group of males or their loved ones. We strongly believe and promote the idea that we all benefit from the promotion of health and well-being.
We recognize our work not only helps improve the health and well-being of the males we care for, but also of those closest to him as each of our own health is influenced by the health of those we love. By helping males heal themselves, males can become healers of their community.
Founded in 2010, the Men's Health Initiative (MHI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization working towards reducing the gender health gap by supporting the achievement of well-being for all.
