"After participating in Youth Mental Health First Aid with Aaron, I feel better equipped for the challenges and issues that young people face in mental health. The in-depth and explicit explanation of how to approach and support the young people in our community is priceless. Already I have recommended to so many people in my life who work with young people to participate in this course that could save the life and dignity of young people."

"Really enjoyed Aaron and his lively and happy personality and willingness to answer all questions. Aaron was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience which helped when teaching content. I am recommending my school and other friends in the field of youth work to do this course with Aaron."

"Aaron is a brilliant and engaging instructor! I was super engaged with the content and unlike previous courses that I have undertaken, this course was presented in a manner that, at it's conclusion, made me feel prepared to handle these situations and more confident in my knowledge of mental health."
