Anyone using a good Trello alternative?

Ideally I'd find a nice kanban-style board where I'm able to optionally enter markdown notes.

Not being able to find the end call button on a remote meeting is the new saying goodbye and then walking in the same direction

One thing I could use at the moment is advice on how to comfort people. I'm not invulnerable, but I'm very lucky to be at a good place in my life. Many of my friends are not.

How do I comfort them? Tips? Advice? Resources?

Boosts welcome.
