Tom Chapman On His Journey, Mental Fitness & Training The Next Generation Of Barbers
 After losing a friend to suicide, award-winning UK-based barber & international educator Tom Chapman (@tomchapman_hair) decided to do something about the biggest killer of young men in the UK*. Through the Lions Barber Collective charity, he raises mental illness awareness and aims to prevent suicide by creating training that enables barbers to recognise, talk and listen out for symptoms of depression.
This week's conversation allows for an insight into Tom's journey and current projects, how his charity saw the light of day, and the importance of educating the next generation of barbers.
* In 2018, there were 6,507 suicides registered in the UK, an age-standardised rate of 11.2 deaths per 100,000 population. Globally, someone dies by suicide every 40 seconds
