People need a new level of support to maintain or regain mental wellness. And increasingly, people are looking to employers for solutions to reduce stress and find healthy perspectives.

Having a shoulder to lean on is invaluable in this age of uncertainty. But people find it hard to unburden themselves with someone who has been suffering through the same stress that they have. It helps to have a friendly, familiar face — a mentor or coach — to turn to in times like these. Businesses that have individualized coaching programs can easily pivot to turn those programs into mental wellness and counseling sessions. Self-reliance, empowerment and determination are all valuable leadership traits, but also vital in developing a sound mental perspective.
