The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult and challenging time for many, but it can also be an unsafe time for those at an increased risk of domestic or family violence.
If you are at risk at home, then please know that your ACU community is here for you and support is available.
Read through our Support for Victims of Family or Domestic Violence page, or reach out to:
For staff at risk under Stage 3 and 4 restrictions in Victoria, speak to your supervisor about the possibility of working on campus as a permitted worker. Additional information and support for Victorians is also available.
ACU also provides leave to staff experiencing the effects of domestic violence. More information is available in ACU’s policy.
With the pressures of today, it’s important to be mindful of good mental health and to pay attention to the mental wellbeing of others around you. If you are looking for ways to support your colleagues and students, register your interest for the Mental Health Essentials virtual workshop on Monday 14 and Tuesday 15 September.
This workshop will provide you with an understanding of mental health issues, and the skills to identify and respond safely, effectively and compassionately to people who may be experiencing a mental health emergency situation.
