Participant Recommendation

"Julie presented a wonderful 2 day workshop at my workplace. The purpose was to train a group of us to be First Responders for Mental Health First Aid at work, and as a natural extension, our community and families. Julie was so easy to listen to and work with and enabled us to all feel at ease and confident with the content. Her knowledge and professionalism were of very high standard. I am now confident, not only to be more aware of needs around me but also to step into conversations and be a support, no matter how small or big it might seem. We also have access to a range of resources to refer to. I highly recommend this course and Julie!"
