Absolutely loved the material and presentation. The facilitator was very attentive to participants and knowledgeable of the topics in the training. The Information was relevant and concise while still being practical. I will definitely be taking more training from Oaks Mental Health.

- Compassionate Crisis Response

One of the best presentations I have seen in a long time. I appreciate the sincerity and perspective in how the training was delivered. This experience was well worth the investment. Oaks has left a lasting impression on how I see mental health and wellness.

- The Cost of Caring

The facilitator was not only incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her work, but she was so caring and empathetic. She shared personal stories that connect to relevant content to provide greater depth and understanding to the teachings. This helps personalize otherwise very clinical topics. I highly recommend taking a course from Oaks, you will thoroughly enjoy it and be sad when it's over!"

-Mental Health First Aid

The training is great! I really appreciated the combination of lecture (reviewing the info) as well as the group exercises and discussions. The training took a comprehensive view to introduce trauma informed care without it being overwhelming.

-Trauma Informed Care

I went home confident that I would be able to help someone who was distressed. The framework, information, and resources were very valuable. I highly recommend Oaks and this training. One day you may save a life because of it.

- Foundations of Suicide Intervention

The facilitator had such a soothing voice and was so honest. I like how her knowledge came from her own self-awareness & journey. Awesome session with lots of great ideas!

- Practical Self-Care Strategies

I loved how the presentation was personalized with real-life examples. The pace and flow of information was great! Most importantly though, the advice given made me feel so much better about what I have been struggling with.

- Workplace Mental Health

Wow, that was an amazing session! So much important information was distilled into 3 hours while still being incredibly practical. The knowledge and experience of the facilitator was astounding. I couldn't have asked for a better training for our staff.

- Supporting People with Addictions

I work with people living with mental illness, and, during Covid, a lot of our clients have shut down. I will absolutely use what I have learned to reach out and hopefully help them to gain the strength they deserve. Such a valuable presentation - thank you!

- Supporting People with Anxiety

I am grateful to be able to take this course remotely and I hope you will keep offering virtual options in the future! This was very helpful and built my confidence in being trauma informed.

- Trauma Informed Care

I appreciated the information being bite sized. Short sentences and paragraphs to read from, simple visuals, and a focus on discussion which encouraged participation.
