We Are in a Mental Health Crisis
Not know what to say.
Not know what to do.
Miss signs of emotional struggles.
Mistake everything for trauma.
Experience compassion fatigue.
No wonder you feel caught in a cycle of second-guessing, worrying if you’ve done enough, and questioning if your efforts matter. When this happens, it's easy to sink time and resources into overly complex programs or into accidentally reinventing the wheel. You don't have to keep repeating these patterns; there's a better, easier, and proven way to care. Spiritual First Aid’s BLESS CPR step-by-step framework and turnkey courses will take the guesswork out of how you care for others struggling with everything from mild stress to mass trauma.

What You'll Learn
Gain the know-how and skills to quickly triage and provide rapid care for unmet BLESS needs and trauma using our step-by-step BLESS CPR framework. Providing support in this way helps people positively engage their faith, feel more connected, cultivate healthy coping practices, and improve resilience.
Gain a deeper understanding of the five core needs our research shows are are most likely to cause spiritual and emotional distress when unmet. Each need is deeply interconnected and can impact faith. Our studies also show trauma commonly causes these needs to go unmet.
Similar to medical first aid which provides temporary care, Spiritual First Aid's BLESS CPR step-by-step framework will help you master small actions that make a big difference. You'll learn how to prevent spiritual and emotional injuries from worsening, provide critical in-between care, and connect others with resources for long-term healing.
