Frontline Mental Health Advocacy through Barber Shops & Salons
This project will increase awareness of mental illness and reduce stigma in Coney Island by partnering with local barbers and hair salon businesses. We will work with 19 barber shops and 17 salons to serve as a frontline on mental health and to distribute mental health related educational materials in English, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese to their customers, and will use social media to promote this partnership. Our barber shops and hair salon business owners reach over 5,000 individuals collectively in one weeks’ time directly benefiting diverse young boys, girls, women, and men.
