Meetings

"It's been nice this year to have a group to connect with and realize that we're all in these struggles together. Thank you for your support!” – SN

Let’s talk about it!

CHOW group discussions are open to all – chef, servers, bussers, bartenders, owners, suppliers, farmers, writers, dishwashers, and industry veterans. Virtual meetings can be accessed from any location, please be aware of the time zones listed. Sobriety is NOT required to utilize CHOW resources.

Our meetings have a topic or theme to consider and discuss. They begin with an ice breaker question, so we can get to know each other better, and move into a conversation about shared experiences. We have an “EXPO” (who is a person who has walked the path of recovery from mental illness/substance use disorder and is trained to assist others in their recovery) in each meeting who can guide the conversation. Sharing is VOLUNTARY. This is a protected space and we do ask that folks do not bring in substances. (See below for our recorded speakers.)

Normalize the Mental Health Conversation

Group discussions help put people at ease. They prevent disease, help people manage chronic disease, help us cope with stress or emotional or psychological challenges. Did you know that not talking to another person for one day is worse for your physical and mental health than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day! CHOW offers a community that knows what you’re going through and the unique challenges of our industry. Let’s talk about it.
