Psychological First Aid

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is about taking care of yourself—your thoughts, feelings and emotions when you have experienced stress, crisis or trauma—and then being there for family, friends and community when they are having difficulty coping.

In this 12-hour class, you'll learn how to anticipate stress and crisis and equip yourself with the skill set to practice self-care and to provide care for others during particularly challenging times. Unlike mental health first aid, which trains people to help someone during a mental health emergency, Red Cross Psychological First Aid teaches you how to build up resiliency to stress and establish coping strategies for stress and trauma.

You must be at least 16 years old to participate.
