Barbara's Story

On behalf of the entire staff at CME LLC, I would like to thank you for participating in the US Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress. Your contribution was greatly appreciated and added greatly to the success of the conference.

You are a wonderful speaker, instructor, motivator that brings your educational, personal and work experience into the workshop. You are one of my mentors in suicide prevention as well as bereavement. I think it would be a wonderful learning experience if one day I could job shadow you on some of your work so that I could add to my suicide prevention and bereavement tool kit.

Thank you for a truly memorable keynote at our 29th annual COVA conference. The toys were a hit and attendees left with much-needed tools to improve their wellness.

In the 5 years that we have been doing the Annual Virginia Harkness Sawtelle Lecture at Mountainside, you are absolutely the best. Thank you. We got the biggest attendance and the most positive response. Everyone simply enjoyed your presentation. The doctors who did not get copies of the handouts are demanding them. Again, please accept my most sincere appreciation.

Our attendees at the 10th Annual Wyoming Victim Services Conference are just raving about how much fun your presentation was . . . Thank you for making our conference a success.
