Quotable Quotes: 
“Our program is targeted to professionals who have a background in human services. Introductory courses give you a good foundation but they don’t give you the specifics for signs and systems, actual agencies in your community and how can you really focus on helping in that particular area. Because mental health is such a broad area, having those specifics really help and we’re pleased to be able to offer them in this program.”
