Walmsley Employee and Family Assistance Program has created a list of helpful resources related to mental health, coronavirus, government resources, as well as, mindfulness and anxiety reduction tools.  Please feel free to share these with your colleagues, family and friends, if you feel they may be helpful.

We encourage you to practice compassion and self-compassion as we maneuver through these unchartered waters.
