A world free from suicide!
The Lions Barber Collective has a vision of a world free from suicide! We aim to do this by creating non-clinical, non-judgemental safe spaces where men feel comfortable to talk about their mental health and be able to signpost them to support and information. We do this through awareness like pop-up barbershops in schools, unis, workplaces, sporting and live events and through training hair professionals in BarberTalk to enable them to be able to RECOGNISE, ASK, LISTEN and HELP our clients and colleagues.
The cost of a death by suicide is priceless to those left behind. The cost of a death by suicide to the economy is £1.7 million. For that amount of money, we could train over 11000 hair pros potentially reaching over 2million people a week, providing a safe space and opportunities for all of them to talk.
