Emotional CPR (eCPR) is an educational program designed to enable people to help others through an emotional crisis through:

C = Connecting

P = emPowering, and

R = Revitalizing.

It has a different emphasis from Mental Health First Aid and has been developed by people with first-hand experience of emotional crisis.
