What is Hood Mentality?

Hood Mentality, founded in 2019, is an initiative for and by young black men that hosts and facilitates projects within London communities. We operate through three strands: creativity, sport and social enterprise to increase expression, resilience and agency.
Hood Mentality provides opportunities that connect young black men. Allowing them to express their experiences, thoughts and challenges. Together we reflect on strategies that encourage and support growth mindsets and mental resilience. All the while building the capacity to heal mental health injury personally, locally and globally.
