Acacia recognises and understands the feelings of anxiety, distress and concern many people may be experiencing in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With the number of COVID-19 cases growing every day, these emotional reactions are increasing.

As the global pandemic continues, and panic-buying and self-isolation is increasing it is important that we understand the impact on our mental health particularly those susceptible to stress and anxiety.

Here are some valuable tip sheets you may wish to share with your staff. However, we remind you to continue referring to the official sources when determining the best course of action.
