Your instructors were great! So many of my staff have sadly had to deal with suicide as part of their lived experience and the training’s hard and tense moments about suicide was handled very well. Thanks!
Many thanks for coordinating the presentation today. Everyone found it very useful and helpful. Thanks for supporting us!
Thank you to all. I parent two anxious children. The movie Angst is a great resource, and the talk reinforces and adds to what I’ve learned before.
