How to nurture mental health in the freelancing world

On June 7, 2022, Outsized CEO Johann van Niekerk hosted a webinar about the importance of mental wellbeing for freelance professionals. In this webinar, co-host industrial psychologist Sheldon Burroughs shared invaluable insights into the unique challenges freelance professionals face when it comes to mental wellbeing, and how to overcome these. He provided a framework for day to day implementation, to achieve and maintain good mental health. You can view the recorded version of the webinar here.

Members of the freelancing community face numerous stresses and strains but these have, historically, been attributed as ‘just part of the job.’ As the last two years have unfolded, more light has been shed on the issues of mental health and the importance of mental well-being, and we are finally starting to place as much emphasis on our mental health as we do on our physical wellbeing.

To help freelancers and independent consultants unpack the topic of mental health, and to provide some tips and tools for the management of mental wellbeing, we have developed a comprehensive document based on the live webinar.

In this document, you will find the following:

  • What is mental health?
  • Facts & figures
  • Freelancers & their unique challenges 
  • Components of mental health management
  • The 6C model of mental well-being (Don’t miss this!)
  • Helpful tools for mental well-being maintenance
