WHERE TO START
This year has brought many to the ledge physically and emotionally. Losing a job can mean losing purpose, routine and a community that supports you.
That can result in losing all hope for life.
Suicides, commonly referred to as deaths of despair, are often linked to those struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Since the restaurant and hospitality industry has some of the highest rates of substance abuse, the risk factor for suicide is that much higher.
We have already experienced a devastating loss – a death of despair – in our Big Table community this year. Since it is top of mind, we wanted to share tools and resources to help in this area.
Our hope is that these tools land in the hands of those that can help offer a glimmer of hope to anyone who might need it during their dark time.
