Psychological first aid course

 

Today many employees have first aid courses and it has become a natural part of the ”must have” skills. Psychological first aid is however an overlooked area though around 1/3 of us will experience mental illness in near relations or in the workplace. Many feel reluctant to address people in a crisis situation, whether after a serious accident or in cases of stress, serious illness or when a spouse or close relative dies. To be able to address and support people in a crisis situation is however one of the strongest tools in helping people to overcome a crisis situation. All the care and support we can give in such a situation is really helping.
