Public Health England has launched new Psychological First Aid training resource. The online training course, developed by PHE, is now available for those supporting children and young people affected by the Corona virus (COVID-19).
People who care for or work with children and young people aged up to 25 who have been affected by COVID-19 (or other emergencies or individual crises) will be able to access a new online Psychological First Aid (PFA) training course. It’s available for all frontline workers such as teachers, health and social workers, charity and community volunteers and anyone who cares for or is regularly in contact with children and young people aged up to 25, including parents and caregivers.
It takes about 3 hours to complete (split into 3 sessions that the learner can complete at their own pace) and no previous qualifications are required. The course is free for all who care for and work with children and young people aged between 0 and 25.
