Emotional CPR (eCPR) is an educational program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps: connecting, empowering and revitalising.

It was one of the most profound experiences I have ever had. This is the kind of work I want to be doing to build community. It is a transformative process.
