Introduction

The goal of this survey is to produce a more comprehensive picture of mental health and substance use in the restaurant and hospitality industry.  
 
Not 9 to 5 was founded on instinct and then cemented in data. We’re seeking your help to better understand what you’re feeling so that we can advocate for the change you need. This data is being collected only for the purposes of evaluation, continuous learning, and program improvement. The results from this will have relevance to industry stakeholders and governments who make decisions that impact all industry professionals during this pandemic and employees who seek information on how best to cope.  
 
Your feedback will be kept confidential, anonymous, and protected, and more than that, it will be taken into consideration and acted upon. Building on a comprehensive analysis of our survey results, we will complete development of Not 9 to 5’s mental health curriculum, drawing on the expertise of mental health professionals to ensure that our work aligns with best practices in the field.  
 
Your honesty and candor will help Not 9 to 5 build a better future for everyone in our industry.
