"Following the session, I certainly feel more confident in identifying the early signs of stress and more able to start a conversation with those who may need support or someone to listen to their position. The session was facilitated in a relaxed, informal manner where we were able to learn from both the trainer and colleagues and discuss topics, which aren’t commonly raised or talked about".
