Encouraging open conversation during such trying times
You may notice our barbershops looking a little different this weekend. That's because Saturday 10th is World Mental Health Day and we're incredibly proud to have partnered with Dave and CALM to help raise awareness and continue to encourage open conversation during such trying times.
As put by Simon Gunning, CALM CEO: “Comedy and humour can be incredibly powerful in opening up the conversation surrounding mental health.”
Our barbershops are open and safe spaces for such conversation. Looking after men is after all a fundamental part of our brand DNA and our barbers are Mental Health First Aid trained to spot the symptoms of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support.
You can help the cause right away today by donating to CALM's life-saving telephone helpline, which has seen a record surge in demand in recent months.
It's been a testing year. Let's keep the conversation open.
