February Amuse’ Mental Health Course

You’re still in time to join us for our Amuse’ Mental Health Course this February! 

This course offers tangible evidenced based skills that everyone can use for themselves or to support a coworker/friend. 

After the course, attendees will be able to:

* Identify causes and conditions which support substance misuse and compromised mental health in the hospitality industry

* Identify vocationally specific supports of hospitality workers, even in rural communities

* Recognize multiple pathways to recovery from substance use and co-occurring disorders

These four hours of training are meant to shine light on some of the most pressing issues affecting workplace wellness.

Created for the hospitality industry BY industry peers, this course offers an overview of mental health, wellness and substance use recovery, complemented by resources, applicable skills, and thought provoking conversations. 

*Your 15$ placeholder fee will be returned upon course completion unless you choose to donate your placeholder to CHOW.

From Redefining Strength:

Since our launch, No More Martyrs has encouraged Black women to define strength in health ways. We’ve shared stories about how Black women are damaging our mental health by trying to fit unrealistic ideas of being a “strong Black woman”.

No More!!

Now is the time for us to unapologetically define ourselves for ourselves!

Let’s start by redefining strength.

Bebe Moore Campbell

Bebe Moore Campbell was an American author, journalist, teacher, and mental health advocate who worked tirelessly to shed light on the mental health needs of the Black community and other underrepresented communities. She founded NAMI-Inglewood in a predominantly Black neighborhood to create a space that was safe for Black people to talk about mental health concerns. Throughout her time as an advocate, Campbell made her way to DC. On June 2, 2008, Congress formally recognized Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month to bring awareness to the unique struggles that underrepresented groups face regarding mental illness in the US.

In 2005, inspired by Campbell’s charge to end stigma and provide mental health information, her longtime friend, Linda Wharton-Boyd, suggested dedicating a month to the effort. In November 2006, Campbell lost her battle to cancer. Wharton-Boyd, friends, family and allied advocates reignited their cause, inspired by the passion of an extraordinary woman.
