• "Robyn is wonderful. She is very accommodating and she knows the content of the course very well."

• "My instructor she was very helpful and well experienced and her explanation well delivered to us, and she was very supportive especially when I and some of the attendees shared their own stories and experience related to the topics in the course contents."

• "One exercise that impressed me very much was Robyn’s suggestion that we note what the participants in the video on psychosis said about their early warning signs. Overall, I was very happy with the course content as well as its presentation. In particular, I thought Robyn guided us gently through this course. Thank you Robyn!"
