“Thank you for the thought provoking webinar this lunchtime. I thought the format was great and I liked that you shared content in a variety of formats: pictures, video, audio. I also think the images you shared were really powerful. We all too often link physical with emotional state and by sharing pictures of people smiling you’ve reminded us that we’re all on a mental health spectrum and we can never assume to know what might be going on behind that smile.”
