Enjoyed the course, it was a real eye opener and the trainer was amazing and clearly passionate about the subject matter. She was able to add lots of additional information.MHFA participant
A professional and well thought out workshop. There were lots of opportunities to share our own personal experiences but at no point did I feel pressured to. I feel comfortable about approaching someone if I’m worried about them now.MHFA Participant
