Following the declaration of a worldwide pandemic and as the number of coronavirus cases rose across Australia, the level of anxiety within the community increased. For many people, the feeling of anxiety was increased by the restrictions put in place by the government to actively manage the spread of the disease.
The Australian Psychological Society (APS) has prepared a guide for Australians, outlining some useful strategies which can help both adults and children cope with the stress or anxiety experienced as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and the associated restrictions.
This resource was prepared by the APS Psychology.
The APS has a number of resources available to assist Australians in
managing their mental health during the coronavirus outbreak.
