Hosted by Alyson Hancock, Assoc. CIPD from Yo!, and Sarah Coghlan from Movember, there was an open and honest appraisal of the challenges hospitality has in addressing mental health issues in the industry.
Minding Minds is really proud to be on this journey with Yo ! - we will be rolling out a programme next year that will see every single GM trained as a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England Champion. Every one of Yo!’s 70 stores will have management skilled to spot asses and assist with mental ill health in their teams, and be proactive in addressing areas that may increase risk.
Thank you to Ravneet Gill from Countertalk for steering the conversation. It was great to see the hospitality / catering family come together under this worthy banner. Thanks also to Rachael Conroy for organising everything behind the scenes.
