Talking about....Depression (TaD)

Extensive experience working with and delivering mental health training to carers of people living with a mental illness, those they care for and mental health professionals, combined with an honours degree in Psychology has provided Gerald with the knowledge and experience required to produce training material related to mental illness, and Recovery.  His experiences supporting people at risk of suicide both in person and through a crisis support line as well as having delivered suicide intervention training for many years have contributed to his development of an introductory course about suicide intervention. 

Course Summary
