What people are saying about JB's training:

“Jonathan held the space for us in a way that felt safe and open to me. His knowledge in this area was clear, but he let us be curious and come to our own conclusions. I would highly recommend undertaking MHFA, and Jonathan was an excellent facilitator.”
— - Bonnie Tuttle (Coach and Consultant), Howrah, lutruwita/Tasmania
