Free Course on Psychological First Aid to Support Refugees

Each year on 20 June, the world celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution. This year, World Refugee Day focuses on the power of inclusion and solutions for refugees. 

Mental health issues are a key challenge for refugees. Help bring hope and support to them by learning about the principles of psychological first aid.

Through easy-to-understand scenarios, this free online course details what psychological first aid (PFA) is and is not, how to provide it responsibly, who can provide it, when and where it should be provided, and when someone should be referred for more specialized care. As it walks the learner through the four main principles of PFA—Prepare, Look, Listen and Link—it also spells out the importance of self-care for first responders and others who are helping people in stressful situations.
