Not 9 to 5 launches CNECTing, an educational platform for mental health and substance use literacy

Not 9 to 5 created CNECTing to distribute educational courses and bring the hospitality, food and beverage community together. The first course available is called Primary Concerns.

Primary Concerns is designed to educate and train the hospitality, food & beverage industry in mental health and substance use support skills to identify, understand and respond to crisis situations.

This course was developed by Not 9 to 5 along with mental health and education professionals for CNECTing. The course outline is focused on the primary concerns in food & beverage and will provide the vocabulary and help to reframe the most common challenges.

CNECT stands for Change Needs Everyone Coming Together.

CNECTing is offering hospitality and culinary friends and family an invitation for free early access to our Soft Opening. This opportunity will allow you to engage in this trial course and all we ask in return is to follow up with questions to better understand how we can improve the program.
