Male Engagement Institute
By serving dads, we change generations. By educating social work and mental health professionals, we change systems. Fathers’ UpLift aims not only to provide services directly to fathers and families, but also to impact the institutions and structures intended to serve them throughout society. In order to accomplish this goal, we have three varying levels of engagement made available to students, social workers, and mental health professionals and community activists.
Continuing Education Courses
At learn.fathersuplift.org, you can find courses listed for social work professionals, which count towards continuing education credits. These courses are affordably priced and intended to help social workers gain an increased understanding of the father’s experience, allowing them to work effectively with fathers and families in their respective roles.
Fathers’ UpLift takes a limited number of interns each year, ranging from undergrad to grad school students, with the goal of helping them to gain an increased understanding of mental health services, racial equity, fatherhood and families.
Fathers’ UpLift is an organization with a unique, holistic, interconnected approach to mental health, fatherhood, racial equity, and reentry. Our evidence-based intervention has proven results well-above what is typical for mental health and community service agencies. If you are a mental health professional or community worker interested in purchasing a license to become a certified FUL partner practitioner, please email for more information.
