Mental illness is a leading reason why people quit their jobs, but companies that accommodate employees with mental health conditions are in high demand.
Sheri Munsell, the founder of Hope Gain, experienced this firsthand when her own mental illness made it difficult for her to work in traditional office settings. She was fired several times due to anxiety episodes or depression and felt defeated and ready to give up.
Inspired by her own journey, Sheri started a work-from-home group in December 2018 to help others who may be struggling like she was. She quickly realized that many group members also had mental illnesses and could benefit from the safety and flexibility of working remotely. As the group grew to over 75,000 members, The Hope Gain Center was born.
Today The Hope Gain Center has several programs that reduce the barriers to employment for those with mental health disabilities. The center partners with companies that are sensitive to mental health and works to place program participants in the best fit for them.
