Through PULIH Bersama Project, ADRA will strengthen community resilience by providing local communities, including marginalized people, with psychosocial support and mental health referrals; and increasing understanding on livelihood support for those who have been severely impacted by the economic crisis resulting from the pandemic.
Therefore, to build and encourage the involvement of the community and volunteers, ADRA, with the support of AHP (Australian Humanitarian Partnership), will conduct training for CBO representatives, minority groups, and volunteers on Covid-19: Psychological First Aid and Mental Health.
Psychological First Aid (PFA) is the globally recommended training for supporting people during emergencies and provides guidance on delivering psychosocial care in the immediate aftermath of the emergency event. Understanding the importance of healthy well-being and mental health in correlation with Psychological First Aid training will be of tremendous value for individuals in the field, specifically to be a more significant help to others. The participants who took part in this training were 302 participants (130 men, 163 women and 9 others).
