A website directing Border business owners and employees to mental health information will go live by the end of next month.
It is among many initiatives The Personnel Group, in partnership with Albury Business Connect, is running with NSW government funding.
Chief executive Tracey Fraser said the website under the Better Place Project would be crucial support.
"It's going to have an employer stream and an employees stream with links to reputable information sources, and connecting people with experts," she said.
"Every employer has a portion of their staff that has a disclosed or undisclosed disability or mental health condition ... our job is supporting those people.
"Business confidence is okay - of course, it's not brilliant - because we're still in that period of transitioning out of the circumstances of last year."
A concierge to start in coming months with Albury Business Connect will revisit the 300 business owners and employees surveyed last year, of whom 47 per cent said that they were not feeling in control of their mental health.
"Face-to-face conversations are still really important, so that concierge position ... will give us a good perspective," Ms Fraser said.
"We would expect that there's a level of stress in any business.
"The government would say that they expected a negative dip because of the removal of JobKeeper.
"We were looking at higher unemployment rates, especially for people with a disability or mental health condition - that hasn't come through yet.
"Of course there's still some that are being impacted; some of our clients have had hours reduced."
Due to the increasing demand for support services, The Personnel Group has added 50 staff in six months.
"Our business has grown, unfortunately because we support people who are unemployed," Ms Fraser said.
"But there are jobs out there absolutely and JobKeeper (ending) hasn't had the massive downturn ... now it will be, 'What's the impact of job seeker reductions?'"
The initial Better Place Project well-being survey, in October 2020, showed COVID-19 and the border closure had a significant mental health and well-being impact on businesses and workers.

A report on the 2021 survey findings is expected to be released in October.
"A big thank you goes to the businesses employees that absolutely stood up during very, very difficult times," Ms Fraser said.
"A healthy business community is a healthy social community.
"And I think that we're returning to that phase now, and it's because employers regained their confidence and absolutely stuck in during the hard times."
