INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS THERAPY (IFS)
Internal Family Systems begins with the belief that we contain multitudes, and that the aspects of ourselves that seem to be causing anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, and other problems are not evils to be eradicated, but parts of us that need to be heard, witnessed and unburdened.
MASCULINITY & MEN'S MENTAL HEALTH
At Trailhead, we believe that healing men involves being honest about the ways in which our culture has not served men well, and how we can start to change our communities, families, and ourselves. Below are some of the resources that have helped us the most in our journey to be better men.
HEALTHY MEN AND MENTAL HEALTH
by Trailhead Founder Jimmy Hill
Presented on 3/30/2021 at the University of Tennessee
Jimmy discusses the effects psychological patriarchy and toxic masculinity has on men and their mental health.
FOR GAY, BISEXUAL, & OTHER SEXUAL MINORITY MEN
Whether you're just coming out or happily partnered, we recommend these resources for sexual minority men to better understand themselves and their unique needs, when it comes to healing and growth.
FAITH & SEXUALITY
Whether you're coming to terms with being gay or simply learning to accept your sexual needs and desires, often the journey to sexual wholeness includes un-learning shame-based teachings around sex and sexuality we learned from church.
Our therapists don't start with the question "What's wrong with you?" They start with the question "What happened to you?" Events in our lives, whether we perceive them now as significant or insignificant, can affect us in unexpected ways.
