On Wednesday I’ll be joining @satbains1 initiative to support #worldmentalhealthday and posting a selfie wearing the green ribbon and signing off from all social media for 1 week! Being able to talk openily about mental health is something we all need to be better at especially in the world of hospitality. I’m proud of all the work @mrestaurants is doing to encourage wellness through both access to support for all staff and #mindful days. #wellness #RUok #toplondonrestaurants #raisingthesteaks #mikereidchef #motivationmonday #mentalhealth
