About this Event

Have you ever felt like you would let your team down if you shared that you were struggling? Do you tell yourself that recognizing your pain is admitting weakness? Hospitality staff often feel they have to put up a strong front to hold their team together. The nature of this work can be long hours, mentally draining, and lower wages makes it difficult to cover cost of living. Now with changes in industry due to COVID-19, businesses are operating with less resources than before, causing staff to do more with less.

In this session we will have a real, interactive discussion on what mental health is, what factors influence it, including the unique stressors service industry workers face. Everyone one of us has the right to work in safe and healthy environments where we are able to be our authentic selves and feel we are contributing, without fear of being ostracized or being seen as weak. Through discussions such as this, we are hoping to make a positive change in our industry; where individuals can maintain wellness and be empathetically supported by team members when they are not well.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of mental health, stronger awareness of effective helping skills and ways they can positively shape their work culture.
