Mental Health Hospitality Coalition
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Not 9 to 5 created this Mental Health Hospitality Coalition of leaders and organizations to unite in solidarity around wanting to provide mental wellness support for the hospitality, food and beverage industry. With millions of jobs lost across the world this year, the existing high rates of mental health crisis and substance use in the hospitality sector will only intensify to catastrophic levels if left unaddressed.
This many people suffering in silence is alarming and the potential impact is dangerous and devastating. The aim of the coalition is to unite us, avoid this work being done in silos and reach across every area of our industry and community.
The purpose of the Mental Health Hospitality Coalition is to unite in solidarity around wanting to provide mental wellness support for the hospitality and foodservice industry. This coalition of global partners believes developing online assets and training modules will ensure the industry's most vulnerable can access help and support for all worldwide, especially in this time of great loss and uncertainty.
The Mental Health Hospitality Coalition is an international organization of industry associations, non-profits, and leaders that has enabled us to share ideas and best practices with allied groups in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
