Mental Health Helpline

Run in partnership with The South African Depression & Anxiety Group (SADAG) the 24hr toll-free #FairKitchens helpline is here anytime you need to talk.

Our counsellors listen. At the other end of the phone day and night, they won’t judge or tell you what to do.  

Free to all food service professionals across South Africa, #FairKitchens helpline has been set up to address the particular challenges faced by those working in our industry. We know the pressures of long hours, demanding service and late shifts. Sadly, local research shows mental health and stress-related illnesses are common in our kitchens and rarely talked about openly. It’s time this changed.

All calls are confidential and there’s no need to tell us your name. 

Call us anytime on 0800 006 333

As well as free telephone counselling, callers can also access further services through the helpline such as nearby support groups, crisis interventions and face-to-face counselling.
