Public Health England have launched a new, free e-learning course on Psychological First Aid during COVID-19 – the course is aimed at all frontline and essential workers and volunteers.

If you are interested the course can be found on the following link: Psychological First Aid (PFA) digital training module.

The course aims to increase awareness and confidence to provide psychosocial support to people affected by COVID-19.  The course is free, and no previous qualifications are required.  It takes around 90 minutes to complete and is also available in three sessions for the learner to complete at their own pace.  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.
