Our Hospitality and Culinary Arts students have been reflecting on the topic of mental health within their industry.

Students were visited by The Burnt Chef Project, discussing student mental health and wellbeing.

Launched in 2019, The Burnt Chef Project commits to making the hospitality industry healthier and more sustainable by focusing on the wellbeing of people within the industry.

From the importance of mental health to how to help those around you, the session allowed students to gain valuable insight and equipped them with skills on how to deal with the mental health within the Hospitality and Culinary arts industry. 

Katie and Hope, from The Burnt Chef Project said “Burnt Chef is a non-profit organisation that aims to break the stigmas around mental health and create awareness specifically to the Hospitality sector.

We feel that it was really beneficial to come out and speak to the students today, give them some tips to use within industry and hear about our own personal stories. The students seemed really responsive to everything we talked about.”

Wirral Met College has a range of mental health services available including counselling and support from our Mental Health and Wellbeing Officers. Support can also be accessed on our Virtual Campus at
