The Drinks Trust, the drinks industry charity, has partnered with Night Time Industries Association within the UK which challenges mental health stigma within the Night Time Economy, to provide mental health support services to the sector by accessing The Drinks Trust’s 24/7 helpline.
The Night Time Economy has been at the sharpest end of the pandemic, with many businesses closed permanently or overburdened with debt, and workforce losing primary sources of income which has a direct impact on families and communities.
As the industry reopens and adjusts to the new normal, we are starting to see the true impact of the human element of this crisis.
One in three nightclubs and night time economy businesses closed for good, and escalating cost inflation impacting customers and businesses, there is a long road to recovery and still uncertainty for the future.
The Drinks Trust’s confidential helpline was extended last year to a 24/7 support line, with all calls answered by counsellors and clinically trained psychotherapists to help callers receive in the moment support to help them cope more effectively with any personal or work-related problems they may be experiencing.
The Free 24/7 helpline is available on 0800 9154610, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending “Hi” on Whatsapp to 00 353 87 369 0010.
