Mental-health support for freelancers

July 28, 2023

Freelancing is a long game. A successful freelance career can easily span many decades, so it’s natural that there will be emotional ups and downs along the way, which may include anxiety, burnout, or outright mental-health issues.

For people prone to such problems, there is Leapers — a large online community created to support the mental health of freelancers and the self-employed. It does this by publishing useful resources, articles, and comprehensive annual mental-health reports.

Finally, as another level of prevention, Leapers has developed a Freelance Friendly pledge or framework, which provides 10 suggested guidelines for organizations.
