I really enjoyed this course and found it really helpful… There is a lot of information put in an easy to read and understand way. I enjoy doing the quizzes, they really test your knowledge and comprehension of the text and points… I would feel confident in filling in my own form… I am hoping to do voluntary work with people with mental health disabilities so I would hope to use what I have learnt if it be needed… I give it 5 stars.
