Mental Health Is A Leading Cause For Why People Are Quitting Their Jobs.

Employers that cater to those that have mental illness are in high demand and are so important.

The creator of Hope Gain Network, Sheri Munsell, like many other Americans, has a mental illness, and her mental illness was preventing her from being able to work in brick-and-mortar companies. Sheri was fired several times for having episodes of anxiety or being too depressed to go into work.

Sheri was feeling defeated and tired, and she was about to give up. In 2011 she decided to do an internet search for legitimate hourly paid work from home jobs. She found several and began to apply what she realized was that her anxiety was alleviated by working from the comfort of her own home and that she was becoming less depressed and had fewer episodes. She was able to work from home for over eight years and still does.

When she started her work from home group in December of 2018, she did so wanting to help those that may have been struggling like she was. What she quickly came to realize is that many people in her group also have a mental illness, and working remotely would be a safe place for them too. As her group grew to be over 75,0000 members, this is when Hope Gain Network was born.

Hope Gain Network offers remote career training, advocacy, and support as well as an online remote job database that specifically labels companies that cater to mental illness. Hope Gain Network is dedicated to providing local events as well as online events that put ease in finding a remote career. We partner with companies that are sensitive to mental health matters and ensure that those that apply for our program are placed in the best fit for them.

Why This Matters

The results of a recent study showed that 50% of Millennials and 75% of Gen-Zers quit a job due to issues related to mental health. According to the report conducted by Mind Share Partners, Qualtrics and SAP, burnout, anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts have been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years among Millennials and Gen-Zers. While this study focuses on these two generations in particular, mental health issues affect all types of people.

Video conferencing company Owl Labs surveyed 1,200 U.S. workers between the ages of 22 and 65 for its 2019 State of Remote Work report and found that employees who regularly work remotely are happier and stay with their companies longer than on-site employees. Of the more than 1,200 people surveyed, 62% work at least part of the time remotely.

In the study, released on Tuesday, full-time remote workers said they’re happy in their job 22% more than people who never work remotely. The reasons respondents said they decided to work remotely were better work-life balance (91%), increased productivity/better focus (79%), less stress (78%), and to avoid a commute (78%)

This is why our programming helps connect individuals to a remote career that meets their mental health needs.

Our program encompasses
1. Online and In-person Training on how to get started working remotely including resume preparedness and avoiding scams
2. Advocacy for individuals who may be discriminated against for mental illness
3. Partnership with companies that are mental health-friendly to place individuals in a career that fits their needs.
4. A work from home facebook community that offers support and help to get started
5. An online database to put ease into finding a remote career

[trx_quote title=”Sheri Munsell CEO Hope Gain Network”]So if we have employers that say we understand, we get it, we know you aren’t lazy and that your mental health struggle is real and valid. I don’t see how this can do anything but eliminate the stigma on mental illness. This is why we created Hope Gain Network to bring together employers that care and people that need it[/trx_quote]
