"Very down to earth and practical. I feel like I have some confidence now to reach out and try to offer support to people around me who may be struggling with mental health." Emily Greenhalgh
"Incredible, insightful and Chris was an absolute wonder to learn from. I struggle with mental health issues and have always found a barrier between aiding mine, and helping others. Chris’ course has helped me manifest my own feelings through honesty, self-care and gave me an arsenal of skills to help others where appropriate." Connor N. K. Byrne
"This class was very informative. This has given me the knowledge needed to be an active listener and provide resources to others. I loved that career options were explored, and the fact other countries were considered!" Ashley Hostrander
"I really liked that the information was broken down in short sections to make it easier to understand. Chris is not only very knowledgeable on this topic but knows how to explain it in words that anyone would be able to understand and apply. He made the complexity of DBT be clear to me know." Marina Del Valle
