We support the UK hospitality industry
In January 2018, The Benevolent - the drinks industry charity - launched a new mental health awareness campaign. The campaign aims to encourage members of the Trade to speak freely about mental health issues within the workplace, creating a stigma-free environment, reminding both employers and employees that The Benevolent is here with professionals at hand who can help you.
To support the Benevolent on their mission, any Mental Health First Aid courses booked by organisations in the drinks or hospitality sector will include a donation to the Benevolent.
So if you're reading this and you work in pubs, breweries, bars, distilleries, restaurants, hotels with dining, catering, off licences, trade press publications, warehouses or an organisation producing, distributing, marketing or selling primarily alcohol. That's you!
In the drinks and hospitality industry:
1 in 3 experienced high levels of stress, anxiety and fatigue over the past year.
49% of survey respondents believe that their company has no mental health support systems in place.
The main barrier to people disclosing their mental health difficulties at work is potential harm to career prospects.
40% of survey respondents don’t feel comfortable turning to their employer for help.
