Psychological First Aid Field Operations Guide 

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an evidence-informed approach for assisting survivors of disaster and terrorism. PFA was developed in partnership with the National Center for PTSD. Access all versions of Psychological First Aid (PFA), including translations and adaptations here.

Psychological First Aid Online is a free 6-hour interactive course in the Learning Center for Child and Adolescent Trauma that puts the participant in the role of a provider in a post-disaster scene. Appropriate for those new to disaster response and seasoned professionals, PFA Online features activities, video demonstrations, and tips from trauma experts and survivors.

This project was funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, US Department of Health and Human Services,  the National Center for PTSD, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps, and the HHS Office of the Surgeon General.
