    Psychological First Aid


    This course is designed to recognize but not diagnose those that are in a mental health crisis and provide emergency support to those individuals suffering from high stress levels, burnout and suicidal thoughts (and actions). These conditions are at an all-time high in areas such as workplaces, schools, indigenous communities and among professional responders. The course focuses on self-care and care for others.


    The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program broadens the focus of training from a crisis-centered approach to one of resiliency-building, which is more effective at improving outcomes for individuals and others in their care. The program uses the latest evidence-based research, with case-based learning that focuses on self-care, personal protection, loss, trauma and stress. The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program also supports and complements other existing wellness education programs.


    Due to COVID – 19 we are unable to offer the in person training required for this course at this time. But if you register now, you will be able to get a head start on the two online portions of the course called “Caring for Others” and “Self Care”.  Classroom dates will be determined once the Pandemic is over.
