Feedback received:

"Friendly and very approachable would recommend Robyn Rottinger as instructor to anyone wishing to complete MHFA."

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

"Spoke well and clearly with friendliness. Acknowledged cultural attributes that a different for elderly individuals from different cultural backgrounds and specific problems. e.g. trauma, pt"

"The videos of individual experiences with mental health assisted greatly in my understanding of what it’s like for other people with mental health concerns. 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!"

Robyn is very happy to travel interstate to provide training, wherever your company may be.
