Psychological First Aid

The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program is designed to promote resiliency and reduce the impact of loss and trauma. It provides knowledge and skills for people to live life through understanding stressors and traumas that impact them, and helps participants gain an understanding of how to recognize when someone else is experiencing distress and how to offer help.

Through the Red Cross Look, Listen, Link, Live model, participants will build a personal understanding of the effects of stress, loss and grief, and how to develop skills for self-care (helping individuals understand personal protective factors).

The Psychological First Aid Online course Self-Care will need to be completed prior to the start of this course. It is included in the course price and a link to create your My Red Cross profile and take the online course will be provided.

Note for Participants:

While mental health first aid programs teach how to help someone experiencing a mental health emergency, Red Cross Psychological First Aid is a resiliency-based program for everyone that offers prevention and coping strategies for dealing with different types of stress resulting from various types of trauma.
