Help is here - free and confidential support programme from Xero
Xero is passionate about small businesses in New Zealand, but are aware of an ever growing need for mental health support for small business owners, their staff and families.
One of the reasons I'm so passionate about Xero is because of the way they support our people, out there doing it all and struggling every day. Mental health is a huge issue in New Zealand, and the more support available to people who need it, the better!
Most of us have had moments where we have really struggled to keep going, keep moving, keep positive. Some of us struggle just to get out of bed each day. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that I have struggled many times in my life.
Xero see this too, and they are doing what they can to help.
Xero have extended their role out of mental health support through the Xero Assistance Program to all Xero partners and starter, standard and premium subscribers for an additional 12 months. Support is available through Benestar, in the way of phone, online, live chat, and face to face counselling sessions.
Remember - you're not alone, look after yourself!
