Cutting Through the Stigma: NAMI and The Confess Project
Join NAMI CEO Dan Gillison and Dontay Williams, CEO of The Confess Project, at Legends Barbershop in Atlanta, Ga., and learn about how the two organizations meet people where they are. Hear directly from barbers, their customers, counselors, NAMI members and folks from The Confess Project about how barbershops serve as a place of community connection and emotional well-being. Learn how barbers are helping fight stigma through open and honest conversation for boys, men and their families in the Black community, and how they can be a springboard to mental health care access and connection to support communities like NAMI.
