Mental health has become a greater concern over the past several months as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic. Most employees are still working from home, where family needs may be notched up to new level with kids’ online schooling or where someone lives alone struggling with the stress of seeing loved ones via video.

A new study from The Martec Group found only 28% of employees felt that their mental health was in the positive range during the pandemic compared to 62% feeling the same way before the pandemic. Corporate Counsel has reported on how general counsel and chief legal officers are trying to prioritize mental health concerns for their legal departments and companies, but in-house leaders also have to work on their own mental health to be able to consult on the situation, especially since many manage the human resources department.
