PWC’s 2020 Employee Financial Wellness survey shares that 54% of participants say financial challenges are their greatest source of stress today.

This caution may have been interpreted as the time before a vaccination would be available or until we return to any sense of normalcy. However, with the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting a growing mental health crisis in Europe, it appears the real marathon will be restoring mental health in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Although we can see progress with the wide distribution of vaccinations and even the reopening of offices in certain countries, the mental impacts of COVID-19 — lockdowns, feelings of…
