#18: The Confess Project – A Mental Health Barbershop Movement
Millions of people struggle with mental health issues, especially in the Black community. So Lorenzo Lewis, founder of The Confess Project had a unqiue idea. He brought mental health to where people go and talk about life; the barbershop. The team trains barbers to become mental health advocates for black men, boys and their families across the country. In this episode, the project’s Chief People Officer, Darnell Rice explains to us why and how a haircut can be much more than just a haircut.
