Mental Health First Aid Training


Sometimes first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is you.  A person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Take a course. Save a life. Strengthen your community.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour course that teaches anyone 18 years or older how to identify, understand, and respond to someone expressing signs of addiction, mental illness, or mental health crisis.  In just ten years, MHFA has been included in SAMHSA’s Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices.

NAMI New Orleans offers Mental Health First Aid courses to assist young people and adults experiencing mental health problems or crises.

Upcoming Youth Courses TBD
Upcoming Adult Courses March 26th (POSTPONED)


Note: The only way to reserve your seat is to pay in advance. If you can no longer attend the training, refunds/credit towards a future class will only be given if requested 24+ hours before the start of the training.

To be certified or receive social work CEUs, participants must be present for the entire day.
