Monika Liechti

The Mental Health First Aid training was an eye-opening and powerful experience.

“Mental Health is not an easy topic but the instructors approached it in a delicate, soft and very constructive way. They are very knowledgeable, passionate, experienced and genuinely love what they are doing. This helps a lot of participants to change their perspective around this critical and sensitive topic and break down the stigma slowly.”
