Mental health in the service industry

Hey friends,

We wanted to take some time over the coming weeks to talk a bit more in depth about our goals. Today we're going to focus on mental health.

One of the first things we want to offer the community is a space to feel comfortable sharing your experiences. We're hoping to have a space (either virtual or physical) to meet & talk as a group. We want to learn and grow together with the community. The wonderful folks at Arlington 5 have offered up their space as a venue for future events & gatherings. We're still figuring out what those events will look like as we continue to navigate COVID-19 restrictions, but we want to know what you think.

We're also developing a list of resources important to our industry. We want to make it easy to find and obtain the help you need, regardless of what that help looks like. Something our hospitality friends have been asking about is affordable therapy & counselling. We've already started reaching out to local organisations to make this happen. If you have any suggestions for other resources you'd like to see offered, please feel free to drop us a line.

We've also been thinking about doing interviews with local FOH & BOH leaders about mental health in the industry. We're working on a question template right now but our hope is that these become more free flowing conversations. If you know any local leaders in the community who would be interested in talking to us about mental health & mental health solutions, please send them our way!

Since community building is so important to all these goals, we want to hear from you! Please take a few minutes to fill out our survey if you have time. You can always get in touch with us through the contact us button on this website or through direct messages on our social media accounts. We want to hear your questions, suggestions & concerns.
