Globe and Mail on Dudes Club’s unique approach to healing

July 25, 2016 — 

As the Globe and Mail reports:

The Dudes model is unique, says Barry Lavallee, director of the Centre for Aboriginal Health Education at the University of Manitoba. Health services for indigenous people typically focus on women, says Dr. Lavallee, a physician and member of Manitoba’s Saulteaux and Métis communities. “What this program demonstrates is that these men don’t want to be ill and, quote-unquote, marginalized.”
