Participant Perspectives
“This course overall was the single most, without a doubt, helpful and informative thing ever offered in all my years searching for answers…it has helped me to understand better and communicate more effectively with my brother.”

“The course has helped me to realize that my son is still inside the body that is often times hidden by the mental illness and that I am not alone in this.”
