Psychological First Aid sessions will be facilitated by a medical psychotherapist and aim to provide group members with easy-to-use practical techniques to reduce anxiety and psychological distress using a psychological first aid approach that has been adapted for clinical use. The evidence informed tools are based on key elements of psychological first aid, psychotherapeutic techniques including mindfulness, and trauma informed therapy. Participants will practice these stress-relieving tools during the sessions and will also learn how to use the tools and skills with patients, family members and peers.
