GROWING OUR SOCIAL MEDIA OUTREACH
We are focusing new energy on expanding our use of social media platforms to reach survivors and allies. Timothy du Vall-Brown – WOR Alumnus and MenHealing Social Media Manager - is offering his creative talents to help us expand our reach in the virtual universe. We invite you to watch two examples of recent short innovative videos.
The best way YOU can help us GROW our social media is to follow us, like and comment on our posts, and ask a few friends to follow us!
GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH BEST FRIENDS
MenHealing’s commitment to collaboration remains a priority in action as well as word. A powerful example is our annual Best Friends Service Project, when MenHealing Staff, Alumni, & Friends provide three days of volunteer time helping abused and neglected animals. Here is a brief heart-touching video that provides a glimpse of our service work from previous years:
