Supporting all your directions!

Training and facilitating in the mental health field has been my life for over 20 years.  Much of the training I have developed has been directed toward volunteers and peer support workers on crisis lines and in mental health facilities.  Facilitation has been with mental health and not for profit groups.   Most speaking engagements have also been about mental health, in particular suicide prevention and bereavement though I have also addressed groups on much more whimsical topics.  I also do pulpit supply work within the United Church.
