Deanna is an amazing speaker. She led several events for my student-run organization and we were thoroughly impressed by her knowledge and wisdom. Hope she can join us again!
Deanna Robinson is the most compassionate, caring, and driven soul in the field of mental health that I have met thus far. With the experiences I've had attending not one but two of her QPR Suicide prevention trainings, it's clear to see that she is dedicated and passionate about providing the resources available to help everyone she can! She is truly a blessing to have around and it was a privilege to have her train myself and my fellow club members at The Undergraduate Psychology Society at UCLA (TUPS).
Deanna is a very great trainer and I learned a lot from her QPR lecture, especially on how to do suicide risk assessment. Deanna answered my questions very throughly. It was a such a pleasure to learn from Deanna!
I have known Deanna Robinson for over four years. I have been particularly impressed with her work as Executive Director of NAMI-San Fernando Valley. She demonstrated excellent leadership, gave clear, motivating presentations, organized and developed staff, and was always warm and insightful in interpersonal interactions.
I had the opportunity of attending Deanna’s QPR training, and it was such a wonderful experience! Deanna is clearly knowledgeable on mental health and suicide prevention. Not only that, but she creates such a positive and welcoming environment. If anyone ever gets the chance of attending her trainings, I would highly recommend!
Deanna is an incredibly knowledgeable person on mental health topics and she has taught myself and my club so much about suicide prevention through her QPR Training. She formats her training with current research and facilitates a positive and safe atmosphere. I highly recommend her services.
I learned so much through Deanna's presentation for a QPR certification because she taught with such a welcoming and lively attitude. She had a good combination of resources as well as live practice that I see being useful in my life going forward. I could tell she aims to make real change in who she teaches, and I believe everyone should learn what Deanna has to teach.
Deanna was such a great person to communicate with, although I never personally met her we communicated via phone and emails. Deanna has the warmest personality. Deanna was such a professional director, she welcomed me to NAMI and made sure I was up to date with everything I needed for my volunteer position. Thank you Deanna!
Deanna is engaging, genuine, and passionate! I enjoyed learning from her and talking with her!
Deanna Robinson is one of our go to national trainers for NAMI Programs. She has years of experience and skillfully executes every NAMI Program she works in (having personally developed the training for many of them). She also has a unique and powerful ability to empathize and empower everyone she's working with no matter where they come from. I highly recommend Deanna Robinson for any of your needs!
Just had to tell you that we finished the class last night and I used it this morning. I had a kid crying in first period, and I pulled her outside to talk. I would never have asked the pointed question about suicide had I not taken the training. I was shocked to get a yes.
I got her down to counselors and people with more training than I have. This email is part of my self care- it hit me hard!
Just thinking how amazing the universe works sometimes….
Thank you so much for the training and for sharing your own story.
