Men's Health

"I consider that there is a men's health crisis going on is this country," says Jo Davies,  a staff psychologist at the University of Oregon. Davies is the co-founder of the UO Men's Center, which is dedicated to promoting the physical, emotional, and social health of young men. He says, "We need to help men realize that it can be liberating to give up power and control – that choosing not to exercise power does not mean powerless."

Over that last half-century, women have established many centers to help them expand their options and to be more healthy.  It's wonderful to hear of men who are establishing centers to help men find the freedom from their restricted hierarchical roles.
