We are career hospitality folks who witnessed first hand the lack of mental health resources available to our industry.
We advocate for mental health awareness by being a voice for those suffering in silence. We spread a message of hope and support.
On Feb 9th, 2021 we will be unveiling a virtual support group program facilitated by a mental health counselor. This program will run on Tuesdays at 6pm EST.
Restaurant After Hours is responding to the far-reaching pandemic by unveiling a mental health support group program for hospitality workers. For more information, please click below.

Know the signs and symptoms to help those around you. Getting certified in Mental Health First Aid is free and the program is offered in most cities. Please go to mentalhealthfirstaid.org to learn more about the program.
Help erase the stigma surrounding mental illness! In most cases, stigma can be deadlier than the mental illness itself, as stigma prevents those suffering from reaching out.
Be the voice for the voiceless. We are behind you 100%.
