Rockford's Mental Health Movement for Men, Orchestrated by Culture Creates Change
ROCKFORD — Mental well-being is an ongoing concern in Rockford. Project 3-C, known as Culture Creates Change, invited community members to participate in the Rockford Men's Mental Health Summit.
Creator Charles Hudson established the event following the suicide death of a loved one, acknowledging the necessity for resources within the community.
"I lost a close friend of mine. He committed suicide, and it troubled me, it affected me, and I stated I have to take action,” said Charles Hudson.
His son, Jordan Hudson, encountered mental well-being obstacles within his family. Jordan Hudson aspires to assist those who share a comparable experience.
"As a young black man, I didn't have my father for the initial few years of my life. I started to foster resentment. I began working in mental well-being and witnessed this on a daily basis. Individuals possess these identical narratives, and I can relate,” said Jordan Hudson.
Managing a mental well-being crisis, financial know-how, and spirituality were all paramount during the summit. Panelists assert that focusing on these areas can improve efforts in addressing mental well-being challenges within the black community.
"It's no secret, considering the history of black people in America, we bear some unspoken traumas that still impact us. Until we confront that, we will endure the adverse symptoms of those ailments,” said Henry McDavid, Panelist and Principal of Kikifers Entrepreneurial Academy.
Culture Creates Change will continue to engage in community outreach and organize events advocating for mental well-being in the future.
