“A very enjoyable day and informative”
“A very useful day…inspiring!”
“The speaker gave very practical advice relevant to a pastoral care context”
“Thorough and thought-provoking”.
The day gives an overview and guidance on how to help care for those who are affected by depression and anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia or psychosis.
