Mental Health Workshop

Liz Sharp is a confident and poised presenter who fully engages her audience.

Her presentation on Working Safely and Effectively with Mental Health Issues was very informative and well presented. It was more, specifically psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, OCD/pure OCD, depression, anxiety etc., useful than I expected and she provided us with excellent resources, a relevant case study and up to date examples to reinforce tips and concepts. 

Despite the topic being a very ‘heavy’ one, her presentation was delivered in simplistic language that all and sundry could understand yet at the same time she were enthusiastic, inspiring and highly motivating to listen to.

Thank you Liz for a dynamic and entertaining talk; you are certainly very knowledgeable in your field.
