One in four freelancers facing mental health issues

A new study has revealed that mental health issues in freelancers have increased by 300 per cent since the start of the pandemic. According to the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed, 26 per cent of freelancers say they had “poor” or “very poor” mental health. They blamed stress, anxiety and sleep loss for the changes. Experts are now suggesting co-working spaces could be the answer.
