⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rated 4.9/5 on Coursecheck (110 reviews)

“Course run and organised well, I like the use of the workbook and instructions sent beforehand. The course itself was delivered very well, with much knowledge and care for the delegates on the course. I have left this feeling lots more confident in talking about suicide and will raise further awareness within my authority.”
