Below are the details of the upcoming HR Roundtable:

  • Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2020
  • Time: 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
  • Location: Zoom Webinar
  • Description: Join us we learn more about Psychological First Aid (PFA). PFA is designed to be utilized by individuals who are not mental health providers, but instead for anyone in a community. It consists of 8 core action components and allows people to “tell their story.” “The psychological footprint of a crisis or disaster situation is much larger than the medical footprint,” said Jody Horstman, Aspire Chief Integration Officer. “Just as we have taken steps to ‘flatten the curve’ so hospitals aren’t overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, we want to be proactive in addressing the ‘second curve’ of behavioral health issues before it overwhelms the capacity to handle it.”

This virtual event is free to attend. To register*, please complete the form below by May 6.

*Training limited to 20 participants.
