Past participant quotes:
Thank you for providing this much-needed training especially for our Black Communities because the stigma that's attached to depression and mental illness prevents many people from reaching out for help. Thanks for teaching us and sharing your knowledge and personal experiences about the warning signs of a Suicidal individual.
Thank you so much for offering this opportunity to help people through better awareness and action. The sharing of your story and the stories of others while guiding us to be more proactive without judgment really touched me. Thank you again for your time, expertise, and involvement
