Red Cross Psychological First Aid 

The past few years have been very taxing on everyone’s mental health and well-being. This course promises to help you learn how to anticipate stress whenever possible and equip yourself with the skills to practice self-care and care for others during stress, crisis, or trauma. APSA has offered this in the past, and the office staff have taken this beneficial course.
