Public Health England has updated their Psychological First Aid (PFA) digital training module. The training is aimed at all frontline and essential workers and volunteers to help increase awareness and confidence to provide psychosocial support to people affected by Covid-19.
Participants who take this course will be able to get a better understanding on 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 is free, and has started on the 15th of June however you can still join onto the course where you require no previous qualifications to take part. It takes around 90 minutes to complete and is also available in three sessions for the learner to complete at their own pace.
