RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In support of Mental Health Month, as employers continue to grapple with COVID-19 uncertainties and safeguarding their employees’ wellbeing, Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) has launched an online collection of resources from the company’s wellness experts, including a series of podcasts on maintaining one’s mental health during the pandemic.
Stay-at-home orders, isolation from friends and family, job concerns and market volatility have led to an increase in stress and anxiety and made an already uncertain situation more difficult. More than one-third of Americans said they are worried about their mental health due to the COVID-19 situation1. While the majority of employers have transitioned to remote work environments to ensure the physical health of their employees, the effects on mental health are just as important to assess.
