Charles C. Daniels, Jr. is a noted Therapist, DRK Entrepreneur, Author and instructor who has taught at Simmons College and Harvard University. After suffering from the absence of his own father, Charles took an unexpected approach to identify the barriers that prevented his own father from remaining engaged in his life. That personal journey transformed into a mission to serve fathers nation-wide, so they can remain positively engaged in their children lives. His faith has led to the creation of Fathers UpLift, the nation’s first outpatient mental health center dedicated to paternal health and male family engagement. It offers an innovative, self-sustaining, and scalable clinical mental health care model. The programs provided by Fathers’ UpLift help fathers address their often-complicated challenges and needs associated with becoming and being a father, while also helping their children, families, and society overall.
