Drs. Ramel Smith, Bill Seymour, and Hector Torres are men on a mission. They want to help men grow into their potential by helping them realize that they have choices, and the choices they make will determine their futures. A look is taken at their "Building a Better Man" initiative. The psychologists work with young men prompted them to create the project. They take their workshop to Mitchell Middle School, Pulaski High School, and prison, to discuss how masculinity is defined in our culture. The three mental health clinicians were recently honored by the Milwaukee Area Psychological Association for Outstanding Contribution to the Field of Psychology for the "Building a Better Man" Project. Joanne Williams hosts.
