NEWTON — The Tree of Health Center (TTOHC) welcomes Robert Cubby and John Drinkard to their team of facilitators, to lead a monthly Men’s Circle beginning this month.

The men’s circle is offered for men to help each other navigate the sea of men's problems and, together, find a safe harbor of suggestions and skills to cope with these problems. With Robert’s and John’s expert guidance, attendees will a) recognize how males are approaching a problem and how it could be improved, b) through discussion and exercises understand how to improve their male approach to problems, c) become familiar and recognize first half strategies and how they affect male decision making and problem solving, and d) become familiar and recognize second half strategies and how they can affect male decision making and problem solving.

As part of this work, he is appearing in the award-winning documentary Code 9 - Officer Needs Assistance and is an Ambassador for Code 9 Project representing Code 9 at various screening and functions. Robert is certified in Mental Health First Aid and, together with John Drinkard facilitates a NAMI Connections Peer Support Group for PTSD in veterans and first responders.
