New Psychological First Aid training open to all front-line and essential workers and volunteers!

It will be okNew Psychological First Aid training during COVID-19 open to all front-line and essential workers and volunteers

On 15 June Public Health England (PHE) launched a FREE Psychological First Aid (PFA) training module, aimed at all front-line and essential workers and volunteers.

The course teaches the key principles of giving psychological first aid in emergencies and aims to increase awareness and confidence to provide this support to people affected by COVID-19. PFA is a globally recognised training in emergency situations and PHE has been developed this new course as part of our national incident response, and in partnership with NHS England, Health Education England, FutureLearn and others.

The course is free, and no previous qualifications are required. By the end of the course, outcomes will include:

  • understanding how emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic can affect us,
  • recognising people who may be at increased risk of distress and
  • understanding how to offer practical and emotional support.

The course takes around 90 minutes to complete and is also available in three sessions for the learner to complete at their own pace.

Take up this opportunity today!
