Abstract

How’s the head is an informative and revealing exploration of the potentially challenging features of working life in the Bar Industry. The bar world is an industry that may provide endless opportunity through travel, recognition and success, yet in comparison to other sectors it features many issues pertaining to breakdown, burnout and depression. Through the use of audio interviews and music, this 45 minute documentary encompasses the voice and stories of people working in the industry. The unique experience of each contributor, as well as professional insight from a research expert, underline the universal challenges people may face when pursuing a career of this type. Relevant to all of this is the prominence of a problem and the lack of recognition by employers and society to try and combat these issues. What emerges is an engaging and informative narrative that offers the listener a glimpse into the many facets of working life in the bar industry and shines a light on areas that need improvement. It offers advice to both the employee and the employer, on how to live a balanced life in this career and support the individual in achieving this.There are many potential areas of exploration pertaining to the mental health challenges facing Bar industry staff. This project examines the challenges on a personal level, but it has opened many potential avenues for further study through both TV and Radio.
