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 Community Support Skills training:
“I believe everyone should undertake such training, it would greatly reduce stigma in the community making it more likely people would seek help if it is needed for themselves or a loved one”.
“[Instructor] explains things in easy to understand language and brings a lot of energy and passion to the presentation. Great resource kit provided”.
