A recent Foodservice and Hospitality Mental Health Survey showcased that 86 percent of respondents are experiencing burnout and 61 percent said their mental health issues intensified due to the pandemic. Restaurants Canada reported that since 2020, nearly 10,000 restaurants have closed. “The Hospitality Healthing Project allows us to give back to those currently working in the hospitality space where so many of us got our start,” says Co-Founder of SABI Mind, Heesoo Cho. “This initiative was based on pillars of increased awareness of mental health, alternative forms of healing and education regarding mental health topics that should be more common within the hospitality industry.” HHP was created by SABI Mind, a Calgary-based client-focused organization that offers innovative treatments for chronic pain and mental health conditions. The partnership with SABI Mind ensures members are connected with a network of mental health professionals.
