Mental Health First Aid Training - Two day course



MHFA is the initial assistance given to an individual with a mental health problem before medical treatment can be obtained. It is the help provided to an individual developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.


Delivered by nb&a group’s accredited instructors, this 12 hour (2 x 6 hour days) Mental Health First Aid Course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants will be educated on the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, together with the how, what, when and where to administer first aid in a crisis situation for:

  • depression

The course uses evidence based research and addresses possible crisis situations arising from these mental health problems with a practical first aid response. Crisis situations covered are suicidal thoughts and behaviours, non-suicidal self-injury, panic attacks, traumatic events, acute psychotic behaviour, aggressive behaviour and severe effects of substance abuse.


The benefits are immeasurable however do include:

  • effective mental health awareness and literacy
  • early intervention strategies
  • evidence based management
  • an action plan for how to recognise, respond and promote recovery.
