Mental Health Resources Added to GGRA Website
In the aftermath of Anthony Bourdain’s tragic and untimely death, the restaurant industry is beginning to face a bitter truth: that mental illness is often left unchecked and untreated (if even acknowledged at all) in our industry.
While resources are plentiful, many do not know where to look.
We’ve added a Mental Health Services section to our Resources page to include phone numbers and locations of services in your county including crisis lines operating 24/7 for every Bay Area county, text messaging services, support groups for those coping with grief, struggling with addiction, or facing mental illness. There are also national suicide prevention and crisis lines available in English and Spanish.
Most health insurance plans include these services, but the resources we’ve included are available to those with and without insurance.
