"This course helped me dust off all those tools we learn along life's road but forget we have. I have also met some wonderful people and feel as I can now go forward with baby steps and keep me on the right road to life, as well as be a support to others around me. Thanks for my learning and support!"

"Keep getting the message out that a mental illness is an illness like cancer or diabetes."
