Psychological First Aid

Learn to support yourself and others

during times of stress

RedCross_Partnership_Training Partner St


These preventative resilience based programs aim to reduce the impact of stressful events.

Stress often comes when we feel out of control.  These supportive programs teach four actions that will help individuals recognize signs of distress in themselves and others, as well as developing skills to respond to the stress well. 

Psychological First Aid training has been shown to reduce the formation of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) and can improve the response to therapy for some who are experiencing PTSD.

The tools and skills learned in Psychological First Aid can be benefitted from best when we implement them and re-visit what we learned often.  We encourage you to sign up for our Self-Care workshops as a supplement and encouragement to your training and as an encouragement to yourself to keep learning and growing.
