Andrae Brown, associate pro-fessor of counseling psychology in the graduate school, was recently honored by the Portland Observer for his work “to engage community members and mental health providers to improve wellness.” Brown was among the first to receive the Portland Observer’s new Community Service Award, created to highlight Portlanders who have made a difference as advocates for disadvantaged and minority communities.

In remarks given at the event, Brown was recognized for his “focus on treatment models that use the supportive structures of families, schools, and communities to address health trauma issues, violence, and substance abuse” as well as his “research on resilience in street-life-oriented Black men, the psychosocial development of adolescents living in urban areas, and cultural equity in health services.”

The Portland Observer also noted Brown’s work to engage health professionals through the Liberation-Based Healing Conference, which seeks to apply the principles of social justice to key community issues.
