• Psychological First Aid
  • The use of Psychological First Aid in supporting the emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing of communities is a top priority. Individuals suffering from high stress levels, burnout and suicidal thoughts (and actions) are at an all-time high in areas such as workplaces, schools, indigenous communities and among professional responders.

    The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program broadens the focus of training from a crisis-centred 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.

    • Recognize the common signs of stress 
    • Listen and reflect on how this stress is manifesting
    • Identify support systems in place to help cope with stress
