Psychological First Aid

Psychological First Aid Training and Program Coming Soon

It is no secret that these are tough times.  It is OK to not be OK right now.  No one is unaffected by the stresses we all feel from the pandemic and from anxiety and uncertainty in our country.  In this midst of this, there are practices and supports we will provide and encourage to help us all bolster our resilience.  

One of these is a program of training called Psychological First Aid (PFA), which is a channel of helping us heal from stress and overwhelming challenges.  PFA is a practical set of tools and skills anyone can learn to provide basic supportive care to people experiencing stress.  We would like every unit in the Wing have a member trained in PFA, and plan also for how PFA can be included as a mission support component.  To learn about attending PFA training, please email
