Dr. Obari Cartman, a Professor of Psychology at Georgia State University and Northeastern Illinois University, has served as an advocate in the mental health field inspiring young Black men to make positive changes in their lives. These changes include learning coping skills to overcome challenges they may be facing now or in the future. 

An accomplished author, Dr. Cartman's books serve as guides for black men's emotional healing and accountability. His first book, Lady's Man, highlights his personal journey to more profound and respectful relationships with women. His follow up book, MANifest: A Manhood Development Experience, addresses young Black men's mental health and unique identity challenges.

On this week's episode of Motivational Mondays, Dr. Cartman touches on various topics, including his sentiment that young Black men can rise above trauma through self-awareness and believing they are worthy of success.
