Training sessions and special events

MindStylz offers training sessions just for hairstylists and barbers. Sometimes we have special events so these hard-working professionals feel cared for, too! Check back often to see what training sessions and events are available in your area.

What is a MindStylz training session like?

We usually meet on a day off at a hosting hair salon or barber shop. It's informal and relaxed. Lunch is provided. A couple members from the Connecticut Psychological Association (CPA) and/or the Ethnic Diversity Task Force (EDTF) will talk about mental health information that targets communities of color, such as anxiety and depression. Feel free to ask them any questions. They will also have booklets to give you that have a Directory of Mental Health Professionals of Color and a list of local mental health facilities that can help you refer any clients that you may think are at risk for anxiety, depression, or other problems. They will also give you some tips on how to take care of yourself as well, since sometimes your client's stress may affect you.

The MindStylz training session you attend may have additional resources than what is given here, but these are a good start. If you would like a directory or listing that is for your specific area, please contact us with a request.
