Do you want to help your community recover from an upsetting event?
Fires, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, floods, physical attacks, mass shootings, hostage situations and other challenging events can create stress and trauma within a community. But it doesn't have to last.
You can get trained to bring Emotional First Aid into your community.
What is Emotional First Aid?
