Hair dressing heros

purplemattfish'sWe all know what it's like to go to the hairdresser and they want to chat, but there's a new scheme in Northern Ireland to encourage hairdressers to spot people who might be feeling suicidal. After training they will be able to offer a listening ear as well as practical information on where to go to see a counselor, or organisations that can help.

I think this is a brilliant scheme and shows that people are willing to volunteer to listen to people in their communities, even as they go about their working day. It demonstrates that you really can fit volunteering into your life.

If you noticed that someone was in distress when you were going about your working day, what would you do?
