It’s time to talk about what’s killing young men.

Helping young men save each other's lives by creating a generation of listeners.

When you wear the mark of the lighthouse, you are identifying yourself as a safe place for a mate to talk. You'll be there to listen and look out for him.

About The Project

A group of young men got together to do something. They realised that to get young men to talk, they need someone to listen. The Lighthouse is a tattoo, real or temporary. It marks you as a safe place for a mate to talk – that you will be there to listen and look out for him.
