Psychological First Aid

First aid for the mind is just as important as first aid for the body. Individuals suffering from high stress levels, burnout and suicidal thoughts are at an all-time high in areas such as workplaces, schools, indigenous communities and among professional responders.

We are pleased to offer two Red Cross Psychological First Aid courses.  Each course is self-directed, and completely online.  Learn at your own pace by working through the training materials independently online.

Psychological First Aid is for everyone. We all have strengths and abilities to cope with life’s ups and downs, however, everyone can be vulnerable under stress or in a crisis situation. Training in Psychological First Aid helps to reduce stigma associated with mental health crises and can reduce negative health outcomes for individuals by promoting positive conversations
about wellness. With emphasis on establishing a connection with people in a compassionate non-judgmental manner, the training also helps to
foster a positive work environment and culture of care in the workplace.
