Psychological First Aid

for Self and Others

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is course that is suitable for everyone. It helps participants to understand and manage stresses in their own lives, and also to understand how to recognize when others experience distress and how to offer help.

The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program focuses on how to build resiliency, which is the ability of participants to notice and deal with stress. This approach is more effective in improving outcomes for participants and those they help. The program focuses on self-care, personal protection, loss, trauma, and stress. PFA courses are an excellent fit alongside other health and safety training, including online First Aid and CPR courses. The program also complements other existing wellness education programs.
