What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In 2017 Mental Health America (MHA) released a two-year study concluding that the hospitality industry correlated with a high level of mental health issues. In 2015 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) ranked the hospitality industry as the highest among 19 industries for illicit drug use and the third highest for alcohol consumption. Some have also called the prevalence of sexual harassment in the industry an epidemic. The restaurant business model has been the same for decades, and every new business is designed off of that same model. Although some workplaces have now put better benefits and wellness strategies into place, it is still not enough to fix someone's personal life. Restaurant After Hours was conceived to begin to fix the tangibles hospitality workers face outside of the restaurant business model. Our aim is to build the quality of life of hospitality workers by reducing stress in their personal lives.

Mental Health First Aid

The Mental Health First Aid course teaches risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies on how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn to for help.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aim is to build the quality of life of hospitality workers by reducing stress in their personal lives. We are doing this by offering or aiming to offer:

Mental Health Education and Advocacy to reduce stress and prevent burnout
Accessible Mental Health Counseling and Services from licensed therapists
Mental Health First Aid Training
Financial Counseling
CPR Training
Sexual Harassment Training
Mental Health Crisis Intervention
Addiction Counseling
Group Counseling through Peer Support
and others.

By raising money we can begin to design and create programs for hospitality workers to use. Our strategies include:

Crowdsourcing
Sponsorships
Partnerships
Working with licensed therapists
Working with financial consultants
Working with rehab centers

The organization is still young and we are working towards all these goals. By networking and creating partnerships we offer mental health support in our current state through our website www.restaurantafterhours.org

We have been into 65 different kitchens in NYC handing out resources directly as well as doing mental health presentations.

We are currently raising money to build out our own counseling center, in which we can then offer all the programs we aim to provide.
