We’ve all heard people say, "I don't know what to do" or "I don't know what to say" after one of their friends, co-workers or family members have experienced mental distress or a tragic event. Many people often feel inadequate and ill prepared to help those they care about when they exhibit symptoms of depression, suicidal ideation, addiction or experience a significant loss, yet the assistance they provide (or lack thereof) is most likely to have the greatest impact upon someone. The need for psychological first aid (PFA) training has been well documented. In this session the presenter will discuss how to equip laypeople to administer PFA.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the key skills people must have to administer psychological first aid.
  2. Discuss major myths that laypeople often encounter when working with others in the midst of psychological distress (ex. Grief, addiction, suicidal ideation, depression, etc.) and how to address these myths. 
  3. Explore evidenced based strategies to equip laypeople to help others transition to professional resources when necessary.
