Our mission at Raising the Bar Foundation is to lead the charge in eradicating the stigma around mental health and fostering resilience within individuals and communities. Through a comprehensive approach that emphasises education, support, and the cultivation of inclusive environments, we are committed to reducing rates of suicide and poor mental health, particularly within high-risk industries like the Hospitality sector. Our vision extends beyond industry boundaries, focusing on creating strong, interconnected communities that prioritise mental well-being and proactively prevent suicide in both specific sectors and the broader community.

Charitable Purpose

  • 1. Empowering Mental Health Education:

    Our primary objective is to equip individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to understand and manage their mental health effectively. Through targeted educational programs, workshops, and resources, we strive to empower individuals across various industries, including the Hospitality sector, with the skills to recognise, address, and prioritise mental well-being for themselves and those around them.

  • 2. Community-Driven Support Networks:

    We endeavor to construct nurturing and authentic communities that emphasise the significance of mental health conversations. By providing platforms for open dialogue and sharing, we aim to establish safe spaces where individuals can connect, seek guidance, and share experiences, thereby reducing feelings of isolation and creating a supportive network of understanding peers.
  • 3. Suicide Prevention in High-Risk Industries:

    Recognising the elevated risk of mental health challenges within sectors like Hospitality, we are committed to crafting tailor-made interventions that address industry-specific stressors. Our initiatives will focus on enhancing workplace environments, providing accessible mental health resources, and fostering peer support networks that effectively mitigate the factors contributing to suicide rates within these industries.
  • 4. Holistic Community Wellness:

    Beyond industry boundaries, our foundation is dedicated to promoting community-wide mental health awareness and prevention of suicide. By organising events, campaigns, and educational outreach programs, we aspire to unite diverse communities in the shared goal of eradicating stigma, increasing knowledge, and fostering a collective commitment to mental wellness.
  • 5. Accessible Resources and Training:

    We will continue to provide Mental Health Response Training to organisations' staff, enabling them to confidently assist at-risk community members. Additionally, we remain committed to offering free online mental health resources to all members, ensuring that information and support are easily accessible to anyone seeking assistance.
