Mental health resources

We keep mental health top of mind.

If you could use a confidential space to talk about the varied stressors of work—or life—our partners are here to help at no cost to you, now or ever.

In 2020, we partnered with Mental Health America of Greater Houston and the University of Houston to provide free mental health care to Texas-based F&B workers and their families. Since launching the program, we’ve helped more than 100 people get assistance. Now, we’re pledging to grow this program nationwide by partnering with other institutes of higher education. It’s all in service of cultivating a kinder, more connected, and more resilient F&B community.

How & Where
We Work

We grant our partner universities funds that allow for supervised graduate-level clinicians to offer no-cost counseling services to members of our industry. When you, an F&B worker, want to inquire about counseling, we’ll ask you a few questions so we can place you with the right clinician. We’ll then have the clinician reach out to you to schedule a session.
