Who should take this training?

Psychological First Aid is for everyone. We all have strengths and abilities to cope with life’s ups and downs, however, everyone can be vulnerable under stress or in a crisis situation. Training in Psychological First Aid helps to reduce stigma associated with mental health crises and can reduce negative health outcomes for individuals by promoting positive conversations about wellness. With emphasis on establishing a connection with people in a compassionate non-judgmental manner, the training also helps to foster a positive work environment and culture of care in the workplace.

With the recent global outbreak of the COVID19 virus, the SWWA would like to reassure its members that we are committed to ensuring the safety of our membership as a whole. Alternatives to the upcoming workshops are being explored and the November conference is still scheduled to take place without interruption at this time. Further details will be provided once final board decisions have been made.  Due to the uniqueness of this situation, the SWWA is working outside its normal realm and ask that you remain patient while we find the most appropriate solution for all involved.
