Our #BarberTalk Mission
Through our training we aim to arm barbers with the knowledge of how to do all spot suffering with mental health and be the support that person needs
If you were to attend they would be given some great skills to help you as barbers/hair pro in general, but more importantly, can save lives.
BarberTalk focuses on four pillars, these are:
Giving hair pros the ability to recognise the signs that may indicate there is a problem or issue
Arming hair pros with those hard to ask direct questions and the confidence to ask them
Possibly the most important thing we can do. Listening with empathy and without judgement
Helping barbers create a plan, have the knowledge of what resources are available and putting that all together to help look after our clients and colleagues
We don’t want barbers to become counsellors, however we would love our industry to embrace the trust we have earned to make a difference and be able to become that first step on that journey, directing people in the right direction to where they can receive the help they need.
Our dream is to roll this training out to all areas of the globe,creating safe places for people to go and talk about the issues they have with the people they trust, breaking the taboo and showing the world that it is ok to be not ok and to share their problems without fear of judgement.
