Albury business owners will be questioned later this year to reveal the ongoing effect of COVID-19 border closures.
The Better Place Project's initial survey last October showed 47 per cent of respondents did not feel in control of their mental health, compared to the national average of 20 per cent.
The project is a workforce wellbeing joint initiative between Albury Business Connect and disability employment service provider The Personnel Group.
Albury Business Connect general manager Carrick Gill-Vallance said this year's study was as important as the first one.
"Just because businesses are recovering financially, it certainly doesn't mean they have, or are, recovering mentally," he said.
The business body will approach its members to participate in the survey again in mid-August.
"We see huge opportunity for the business community to access tools and services to manage mental health within their teams," Mr Gill-Vallance said.
