"The Confess Project is America's first mental health barbershop movement. Currently in 14 cities, it is a grassroots movement committed to building a culture of mental health, particularly for young men of color," states Founder Lorenzo Lewis. Lorenzo was clinically diagnosed with depression and, having grown up in his aunt's beauty salon, he knew he "needed to reach people where they already were." Barbers receive training to become Mental Heath Advocates and learn skills to engage properly in order to increase access to further mental health treatment. Lorenzo secured a national partnership with Gillette to aid in furthering this incredibly worthy initiative. Listen to hear more about the state of mental health care in America, future plans for the Confess Project and more.
