We exist in a moment of shifting male identity. The questioning of long-standing norms about male gender identity may leave some feeling as if their thoughts and feelings are not valid or worth sharing. Others may fear coming off as too dominating. Internalizing one’s thoughts and feelings, however, can be problematic. If these important issues pertain to your male identity, join Anthony Gonzalez, a mental health counseling intern and student at SUNY New Paltz, for weekly group discussions. With a mind toward creating healing dialogues, we will create a safe space in which to broach these subjects.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
