In the current environment, many individuals are experiencing higher levels of stress than usual. The Canadian Red Cross has two online Psychological First Aid courses - Self-Care and Caring for Others.
Psychological First Aid teaches how to recognize signs of stress, loss, and grief in yourself and others, and how to help. Learners come away with coping strategies to prevent, identify, and deal with stressful events, a better understanding of the support available to them, and knowledge on how to access specialized support as needed. The Psychological First Aid - Self-Care course also helps individuals build their own self-care plans to manage their mental wellness.
