The impact of mental health in the hospitality industry is often overlooked. The hospitality industry is built on passion and creativity, but that does not come without its own costs and barriers. It can be a tough industry to work in at times with long hours, lots of teamwork, and managing the public. This interactive workshop is designed to explore the challenges faced by hospitality professionals and giving education and training on how to create healthy, empowering, and psychologically safe workplaces. 

A specialized mental health training program designed to 

help those working in the hospitality, food, and beverage industry.

The service industry is not for the faint of heart, but it can be an incredibly rewarding and empowering community to be a part of. For years, the mental health and well-being of those working in the hospitality and service industry has been neglected.

We want that to change.

That is why we have created this program for you

The Reality is... 



A Mental Health certification designed with the hospitality and service industry in mind. 

We have teamed up with the Stigma 86 Foundation and Smiles Thru Lindsey to bring you an intentional and relatable mental health training program specific to building positive well-being within the industry. 

Our goal is to give you the tools in hand to: 

✓ Recognize mental health in yourself and others

✓ Understand how mental health impacts professional and personal life

✓ Build skills to initiate conversations on mental health with those around you. 

✓ Explore topics on self-care and proactive mental health

✓ Know what community supports are available to yourself and others and how to get connected


So that you can better understand yourself, and know how to support those around you. If you are interested in better understanding mental health, looking for tools to support those around you and on your team, and create Psychologically Safe work environment, this program is for you. 


We know that your time is valuable, so we have designed this program to give you the information you need, without giving up your whole day. 


At this time, we are only hosting trainings in-person. We value an interactive and interpersonal experience, so support learning and conversations. 


We are honoured to collaborate with Stigma 86 and Smiles Thru Lindsey to offer this program for FREE

Here's the breakdown


This program is open to individual registration, however, if you would like your team to access this training together as a group, we would love to make that happen. 


Each participant will receive a certificate of completion to honour the time you spent gaining knowledge. For businesses that choose to train their teams together, we can supply certification for the establishment to acknowledge your commitment to Mental Health


Often, those working in the service industry do not have health benefits. As part of our ongoing commitment to mental health in our community, Social Shift Therapy and Wellness is honoured to offer FREE counselling support to those in the service industry through our intern therapist program.

Meet your Workshop Facilitators

Hey there, we are Brittany and Jon. 

We are passionate about mental health and community building. We don't believe in boring workshops - no one wants that - we want to have fun while we learn with you.  If we are going to spend 4 hours together, let's make it interesting and hopefully share some laughs.

If you are wondering why we have chosen to focus on the service industry, we would love to share more about that! We have both worked in the Service Industry over the years and are passionate about Mental Health in our community. Often, the service industry is overlooked when it comes to Mental Health, and through this collaboration, we can bridge our expertise with the wonderful work of Smiles Thru Lindsey and  Stigma 86. We know there are many areas we can focus on that will build Mental Health in our community, and believe us when we say this - we are just getting started! 


It is an honour to be able to bring our training and knowledge on mental health back into an industry we care so much about. This collaboration between Stigma 86, Smiles Thru Lindsey, and Social Shift has been a goal for quite some time - we are looking forward to getting started, and seeing how we can continue to grow and support the community. 

We are excited to learn with you,
Brittany & Jon Davies
Founders of Social Shift Therapy & Wellness
