It includes a decision making flow chart, Do's and Dont's of Psychological First Aid, and a space to list available services in the given location. The tool can be printed, folded, and carried at all times. It should be used through all phases of an emergency response programme. Awareness on the tool should be given to all staff at the start of employment.
