Psychological first aid resources
The World Health Organization has just come out with some interesting new resources around psycho-social support in emergencies and mental health issues for emergency workers. Their new guide ‘Psychological First Aid: Guide for Field Workers’ covers how first responders can best offer social and psychological support as they provide humanitarian aid to people suffering from serious crisis events. It provides widely agreed upon psychological first aid materials for use in low and middle-income countries. It reflects the emerging science and international consensus on how to provide basic support to people in the immediate aftermath of extremely stressful events.
