Feedback on our Training:

We receive feedback from participants at the end of all our training sessions and, if consented, a month after completion. This is what participants have said about our training:

“I am extremely grateful for the free training and [instructor] was fantastic and very approachable. I have been encouraging everyone I know working in the community services sector to do the training if the opportunity presents itself. Thank you RAMHP!”

“It was very helpful and dispelled a lot of myths. It also gave insight into the number of people with a mental health issue, and the amount and type of assistance available”.

“I found this the best mental health session I have attended in the last 7 years”.

“The training did make me aware of another service that was available and I am now using that service”.

“This training should be mandatory for everyone! More people need to be aware of mental health and how to deal with issues”.
