What is Psychological First Aid
The Nebraska Psychological First Aid curriculum is an adaption of “Community-Based Psychological Support” developed by the International Red Cross.

- Psychological Support
- Stress and coping
- Supportive communication
- Promoting community self-help
- Functional Needs populations
- Helping the helper
