These women turned to mental health jobs because of the pandemic Sat, 18 Jun 2022 14:32:42 +0000
Placeholder while loading article actions

Samantha Kubik, 26, has worked in luxury for five years. But during the pandemic, Kubik said, she grew frustrated using her energy to sell “people things they didn’t need and constantly putting out fires on something as insignificant as a piece of jewelry. “.

She realized she wanted to uplift people instead of worrying about bottom lines – and could finally see clearly how important mental health care was, she said.

A year ago, Kubik began volunteering with a suicide hotline for weekly evening or night shifts. The difference between this and his day job was immediately obvious.

“At the hotline, there’s such a level of respect, support and appreciation,” Kubik said. “Having my own mental health issues, I know the impact mental health services can have.”

This summer, Kubik changed paths and started applying for a master’s degree in counseling. She is one of many women who have chosen to leave their chosen field since the start of the pandemic to pursue a career in mental health.

Ask Sahaj: When is it time to leave a new therapist?

Women are already overrepresented in the field: In 2017, they made up about 82% of therapists, 73% of counselors and 67% of psychologists, according to data from the US Department of Labor. This share has increased over the past two decades, according to the American Psychology Association: women made up 50% of the psychology workforce in 2004 and 70% in 2019.

Mental health care, however, is still inaccessible to many Americans. Mental Health America’s 2022 report found that 56% of Americans with mental illness do not receive treatment. The pandemic has made the crisis worse: it has led to an increase in anxiety and depression and a shortage of treatment and resources.

Additionally, women have suffered disproportionate job losses during the pandemic – and employers are often the providers of health insurance. Others decided to quit their jobs in the midst of the “big quit” and pursue opportunities that seemed more closely aligned with their values.

In a devastating pandemic, teenagers are “more alone than ever”. Many struggle to find help.

The pandemic has opened Mindie Barnett’s eyes to what really matters to her. The 48-year-old is entering her second year of a master’s degree in clinical psychology and family therapy this fall and is taking online classes while running her public relations firm and juggling her duties as a single mother.

“After the pandemic, I had time to reflect on my own life, the level of stress I face as a PR business owner, and my newfound interest in mental health,” a- she declared. Barnett has represented mental health experts in her role as a publicist and credits this exposure, in part, to her growing interest in entering the field.

However, becoming a clinician is not the only mental health-focused path that women take. Anushka Dias, 26, quit an advertising job she held for three years to become a mental health researcher. She had felt no connection to publicity work, she said, and the pandemic left her wondering if she would still be happy there 10 years later. She is now about to complete a Masters in Global Mental Health and Society.

The move uses Dias’ undergraduate degree in psychology and anthropology, she said, and it makes her feel like she’s contributing to the things she really cares about changing in the world, especially in her India. native.

“I feel like there are voices of hurt and joy left out of the conversation as we look at mental health from the singular lens of solving the problem before trying to figure it out,” Dias said. “A series of personal experiences and observations of the way mental health care is structured tells me something is wrong. People I knew were seeking therapy and taking medication, but the feeling of improvement seemed to level off after a certain point.

The decision to start over in a new profession has, at times, felt like a step backwards for Dias, she said. She still suffers from burnout when she dives into research – a problem people in the mental health field face. She sometimes wonders if it would have been better to stick to a career where personal and professional issues do not intersect.

“These lines fade very often and I easily feel emotionally drained,” Dias said. Indeed, a July 2020 study of more than 2,000 psychiatrists in North America found that 78% had high levels of burnout and 16% qualified for a diagnosis of major depression. Women were more likely to experience both.

But women continue to enter the field of mental health, and some are taking preventative steps to take care of themselves. Dias coped with burnout by focusing more on self-care, finding time for unrelated activities, and spending time with friends she can talk openly about her struggles with.

Kubik, for her part, hopes the mobility of the field will allow her to turn to a different side of mental health work if being a clinician becomes too overwhelming. In the meantime, she is also exploring coping mechanisms, such as yoga and breathing, to protect her own mental health, she said.

Quanesha Johnson, 41, quit her job as a school educator to open a private consulting practice ahead of the pandemic. But she said she knows the importance of finding balance, especially during this time: For her, that comes in the form of a community of mental health-focused co-workers who support each other. Johnson found that working in mental health during the pandemic further underscored “the importance of proper rest, taking care of my body, and that even though I’m in the helping profession, it’s normal to ask for support for myself,” she said. .

Johnson noted that even as she deals with the emotional toll of issues like full workload, racial injustice and home navigation, she’s never been more invigorated to provide education and support. of mental health.

“I want to help increase representation on the ground and see mental health resources also accessible to communities of color,” she said.

Indeed, the pandemic has shown many women that their careers aren’t as fulfilling as they could be. But this realization does not equate to automatic change – for many people, keeping the job they have is essential to maintaining economic stability.

For Kubik and Dias, who have made the leap, there is the fear of not being able to find a job. But, they said, they are sure that is what they are supposed to do.

“Work takes up so much of our day, and I wanted to be able to enjoy what I was doing,” Kubik said. “Most importantly, I realized I felt energized working with people and making a difference in their lives.”

]]> The Day – Tampon makers say they are working to address reported shortages Tue, 14 Jun 2022 05:23:44 +0000

Tampon makers say they are scrambling to replenish supplies of their products after shortages were reported on shelves across the country.

On Monday, US Senator Maggie Hassan sent a letter to Procter & Gamble Co., Edgewell Personal Care Co., Johnson & Johnson and Kimberly-Clark Corp. asking what they plan to do to respond to reports of shrinking supply and rising prices by third-party sellers. The New Hampshire Democrat cited multiple news reports of a shortage. This follows a shortage of formula and rising prices for everything from food and clothing to gasoline and menstrual products.

Companies should “take immediate action to increase the supply of tampons and end unnecessary price increases,” Hassan said in the letter. “Access to menstrual products should be treated like any other essential good.”

Inventory levels for women’s products hovered around 92% for the week ended May 29, according to IRI data, around normal levels. Data is not isolated for buffers alone.

P&G, which makes brands such as Tampax and Always, has a nearly 50% market share in menstrual care supplies in the United States. The company is “working hard to increase production to meet increased demand for our products,” a spokesperson said in an emailed statement Friday. Edgewell, the company behind the Playtex and ob brands, cited surges in the omicron variant of COVID-19 as the cause of any inventory declines.

“We have been operating our manufacturing facilities around the clock to replenish inventory and anticipate a return to normal levels in the coming weeks,” an Edgewell spokesperson said in an email.

The reported shortages are the latest blow to consumers for whom the products are essential: the average cost of a box of tampons rose 9.8% in the year to May 28, according to NielsenIQ, and 8.3% for a box of napkins. Such increases can be particularly difficult for poor or low-income consumers, many of whom have previously struggled to afford such products. Federal programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program do not cover menstrual products, and 26 states impose a tax on menstrual products.

An April 2021 survey by Kimberly-Clark found that two out of five people in the United States struggle to afford menstrual products each month, a condition known as period poverty. As a result, 38% of low-income women reported missing days of work, school, or another event because they didn’t have the products they needed.

]]> Ongoing campaign to help migrants | Local News Sun, 12 Jun 2022 10:00:00 +0000

The We Care Community Resource Center plans to hold an event this week to help migrant families who come to the South Haven area during the summer months to work on local farms.

Drive-through donation day is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, June 14, at the We Care Resource Center at 1301 M-43 Hwy., near the intersection of Blue Star Highway.

“Migrant workers often travel in large groups, which makes it impossible to transport things from one place to another,” said We Care executive director Erika Morrison. “They also often have little means of transport, so they can’t take much with them. And according to sanitation, often times things aren’t in the best possible condition when they arrive at a farm. So, by providing them with clean linens, clothes, and household items, we have a big impact on their lives by encouraging them and giving them integrity. More than 8% of our workforce in Michigan are migrant workers.

We Care hopes to receive lightly used clothing, blankets, sheets, pillows, small appliances, hats, bandanas, work gloves, lightly used children’s toys and foods commonly consumed by migrants, such as as tortillas, tomato sauce, bread, rice beans and La Moderna macaroni.

Food and personal care items are also wanted for the Secret Food and Personal Care Pantry. People are asked to limit food and personal donations to five per donor.

Dairy Queen coupons will be available to donors on a first-come, first-served basis.

Necessary partners with TerraCycle to launch a national recycling program in the United States Fri, 10 Jun 2022 15:03:04 +0000

Necessary, the creator of personal care products, has partnered with international recycling leader TerraCycle to launch a nationwide U.S. program to recycle Necessary product packaging.

By participating, Necessaire customers can recycle empty products that are not easily recyclable through curbside recycling options.

“We are excited to expand our recycling efforts through a partnership with TerraCycle,” said Randi Christiansen, CEO/Co-Founder of Necessaire. “Today, we take a three-part approach to recycling: first, we continue to source materials that we believe have a better carbon footprint; second, we verify our recycling declarations via How2Recycle; and third, we’re excited to partner with TerraCycle to ensure that packaging that can’t be easily recycled through American curbside solutions now has a home. The point is, we have a footprint at Necessaire – we take more than we give – and today we recognize that we can be responsible luxury at best. Joining forces with TerraCycle is part of our broader commitment to responsible luxury. A commitment towards which we still have a long way to go.

Through the Necessary Recycling Program, consumers can send Necessary packaging that is not readily recyclable through curbside recycling programs, to be recycled for free, including but not limited to empty tubes, plastic closures, complex closures and pumps. Participating in the program is simple: register here and send eligible Necessary packaging using the prepaid UPS shipping label provided. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be reshaped to make new recycled products.

If the Nécessaire recycling program is an integral part of the brand’s strategy to reduce its environmental footprint, it is certainly not the first impact initiative implemented by Nécessaire. Since 2019, its first year of activity, Nécessaire has been an inaugural member of Climate Neutral. Necessary has measured, offset and reduced its carbon emissions every year. Nécessaire is also a member of 1% For the Planet, allocating a 1% land tax to non-profit environmental organizations defending its air, land, water and wildlife around the world.

“More and more consumers are focusing not only on the well-being of the skin, but also on the well-being of the planet,” said TerraCycle CEO and Founder Tom Szaky. “By participating in the Necessary Recycling Program, consumers have a unique opportunity to demonstrate their respect for the environment by diverting their packaging waste from landfills, as well as through the products they choose to include. in their hair care routines.

The Necessary Retraining Program is open to any interested individual, school, office or community organization.

CA is working to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals in everyday products Mon, 06 Jun 2022 15:00:00 +0000

SE Williams

Lawmakers took another step toward controlling the intentional use of the toxic chemical PFAS in cosmetics sold in California recently when the Assembly passed cosmetic safety legislation, Assembly Bill 2771. .

PFAS are commonly identified as toxic “eternal chemicals” because they do not break down in the environment or accumulate in the blood and organs.

“Exposure to PFAS compounds, even at very low doses, has been linked to serious health problems,” said Assemblywoman Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), who introduced Bill 2771 to the Assembly. “I drafted this bill because Californians shouldn’t have worried about putting their health or the health of their loved ones at risk by doing something as routine as applying lotion or applying makeup. .

Lawmakers took a step closer to controlling the intentional use of the toxic chemical PFAS in cosmetics sold in California when the Assembly passed AB2771. (source:

In 2018, EWG scientists surveyed the Skin Deep® database, which provides ingredient lists and safety ratings for more than 85,000 cosmetic and personal care products, to see which contained PFAS. The report found that researchers identified 13 types of PFAS in more than 300 products. The products were found among more than 50 brands.

“Banning the sale of personal care products containing these chemicals forever is a critical step toward reducing unnecessary exposure,” Friedman added. Forever chemicals are used in products such as dental floss, lotions, cleansers, shaving cream, lipstick, eyeliner and mascara to supposedly improve durability, texture, condition or smooth the skin, or give it a shiny appearance. Experts report that cosmetics with the highest levels of PFAS are often marketed as “waterproof, wear-resistant, or long-lasting.”

“Concerns are growing worldwide about the toxicity and environmental persistence of PFAS chemicals. To combat PFAS pollution of our bodies and the environment, all non-essential uses of PFAS must be immediately restricted,” said Susan Little, Environmental Working Group (EWG) Susan Little, Senior Counsel for California government business.

Little made the comments last October when Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation restricting the use of PFAS in food packaging and paper straws beginning January 1, 2023.

When Newsom signed the legislation last year, it came more than a decade after experts warned of health problems posed by perfluorinated chemicals (PFAS) known to cause cancer and d other harmful effects.

However, despite the warnings, a report published by EWG in 2017 found that fast food companies continue to use products such as wrappers, bags, boxes, etc. coated with PFAS. Four years later, in 2021, California passed legislation to protect its residents.

PFAS are called “eternal chemicals” because they do not break down in the environment or accumulate in our blood and organs. (source:

Also on January 1, 2023, manufacturers will be required to list – on their publicly accessible websites – all chemicals found in their pots, pans and other cookware and will be prohibited from making false marketing claims that lead customers to believe their products are PFAS-free. .

Following the same initiative, starting January 1, 2024, manufacturers must begin labeling cookware with toxic chemicals on the handles or in the liners.

“For the first time, cookware manufacturers must disclose on labels the chemicals found in the surface coatings of their products,” Little said.

In October 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation restricting the use of PFAS in food packaging and paper straws. (source: pexels-Erik McLean)

Very low doses of PFAS in drinking water have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, reproductive and immune system damage, and liver and thyroid disease. Exposure to PFAS is also linked to interference with vaccines and is associated with a high risk of breast cancer, increased cholesterol and other serious health problems, explained the EWG in a recent statement to the press.

According to the non-profit organization Safer Chemicals, at least 14 fast-casual restaurant chains with more than 123,534 stores and more than $203.2 billion in collective annual sales, have pledged to eliminate PFAS in packaging. food. Those involved include Burger King, McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, among others.

Only time will tell if makeup and other industries that may be impacted by the CA Senate’s potential passage of AB 2771 and the Governor’s potential signing of the law will also be socially sensitive.

The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that enables people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. Through research, advocacy, and unique educational tools, EWG drives consumer choice and civic action.

Local personal care brand expands solutions without plastic bottles Sat, 04 Jun 2022 13:28:24 +0000 Human Nature expands its plastic bottle-free product line with the introduction of its first-ever facial bar.

Environmental issues continue to persist and are reaching historic highs as the cycle of plastic consumption in the Philippines continues. A study published in the journal Science Advances shows that the Philippines contributed more than a third of the plastic waste that ended up in the Earth’s oceans, with the Pasig River being the main source of plastic pollution.

This is also driven by its “bag economy”, which has led to the proliferation of cheap but unsustainable single-use plastics that end up polluting the land and ocean.

Driven by its longstanding commitment to sustainability, local personal care and home care brand Human Nature continues to provide plastic bottle-free, cost-effective solutions that are better for the planet and better for the skin. By April this year, Human Nature had already saved 22.8 tonnes of plastic bottles from ending up in landfills, beaches and oceans as well.

Today, Human Nature offers the widest range of solutions without plastic bottles.

Expanding this range, Human Nature recently launched its very first face bar, the Sunflower Face Bar.

Unlike regular bar soaps with high pH levels, Sunflower Face Bar is optimized for the pH level of facial skin with a pH value of 4.5-5.5, keeping it soft and hydrated. It is an excellent choice for people with normal to dry skin.

The bar goes above and beyond in terms of benefits. Along with its proven skin benefits, it also helps consumers reduce their plastic waste by 98.9% (compared to 200ml of facial cleanser), making it a smart choice for better skin health. and the environment.

The brand continues to unveil more and more products with less or even zero plastic material. It started launching shampoo bars in 2019, and with its continued push for more sustainable products for Filipino families, it released more variants for kids and men.

It has also expanded its line of bars into personal and home care with the launch of its Feminine Wash Bar, breakthrough dishwashing powder, and baby bottle and utensil cleaning powder. Many of them are equivalent to one to two bottles minimum of their liquid counterparts, saving consumers money and storage space while helping the planet. The bar products are also cruelty-free, vegan, and pH-balanced, allowing users to do body care without compromise.

former Brookfield business owner sentenced to federal prison for tax offense | USAO-EDWI Wed, 01 Jun 2022 20:52:08 +0000

United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling announced that on May 27, 2022, United States District Judge JP Stadtmueller sentenced Kimberly Zulkowski (43) to 15 months in prison, followed by three years of probation, for his willful failure to report and pay the taxes owed to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Zulkowski was also ordered to pay $731,970 in restitution and a $100 special assessment.

According to court records, Zulkowski founded and managed Faith Family Services, Inc., a personal care business based in Brookfield, Wisconsin. His business was successful, with annual gross revenues exceeding $5 million and over 150 employees. Despite this success, Zulkowski refused to remit monies she had withheld from her employees’ salaries as part of her company’s tax obligations.

Court records reveal that although the IRS warned Zulkowski in 2015 that she was violating federal tax laws, she nonetheless persisted in her criminal conduct for nearly two years. Zukowski ultimately pleaded guilty to willful violation of tax laws in February 2020.

In sentencing, Judge Stadtmueller pointed out that our tax system relies on voluntary compliance, so defendants who willfully flout tax laws must be sentenced in a way that encourages compliance.

“Individuals and businesses that cheat on their taxes not only undermine the government’s ability to fund vital and necessary programs, but also effectively steal from their fellow citizens,” U.S. Attorney Frohling said. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office remains committed to working with IRS-Criminal Investigation and our other federal, state, and local partners to investigate and prosecute individuals who engage in these types of tax-related offenses.”

“Failure to pay employment taxes levied on employee wages is a serious criminal offense,” said Justin Campbell, special agent in charge of the IRS Criminal Investigation Chicago field office. “This not only harms the employee’s future Social Security and Medicare benefits, but robs honest taxpayers and the United States Treasury. The IRS criminal investigation will continue to hunt down those who collect these taxes and use the funds for personal purposes.

This matter was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Kevin Knight and Kate Biebel.
