What People Are Saying
|“Hearing personal experiences and
how relatable my experiences are to
them was very helpful. Hearing
specific strategies to communicate and specific traits that people with mental illness have. Know that the illness is what can cause “cruelty” and poor decisions rather than the person.”
|“I have a better understanding of how
mental illness impacts the person
affected…it was nice to hear the stories of the instructors and their paths. The handbook (eBook) given has a lot of helpful information which I did not know about.”
