Empowering Frontline Heros
The Confess Project of America is a national organization that fosters mental health advocacy in the African American Barber and Beauty Industry. We are focused on empowering frontline workers and everyday people through our groundbreaking mental health curriculum that has been evaluated by Harvard University.
Movement Solving Mental Health Disparities in Communities of Color
Through our 4,000 barber and beauty industry professionals trained across the country, we are reaching over 4 MILLION people per year. We are currently in 61 cities and 32 states!
With 1 in 5 people in the U.S affected by mental illness, there’s never been a more urgent moment for mental health advocacy. TCPA’s programming specifically focuses on communities of color who have far too long borne the brunt and weight of trauma, alone.
Our team brings over 40 years collective experience in fields ranging from social work to behavioral health to therapy to develop programs for those who have the greatest stake in the issue. Hoping to reach as many advocates as possible, we see our programs as part of a wider movement to solve mental health disparities in communities of color—now, and for generations to come.
