The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program broadens the focus of training from a crisis-centred approach to one of resiliency-building, which is more effective at improving outcomes for individuals and others in their care. The program uses the latest evidence-based research, with case-based learning that focuses on self-care, personal protection, loss, trauma and stress. The Red Cross Psychological First Aid Program also supports and complements other existing wellness education programs.
