Testimonials

“They (the fact sheets) effectively summarise the most important issues and help me to focus on those issues when I come under pressure.”

ANONYMOUS

“I have used the fact sheets and would advise others to also use them. They have been really helpful with my clients as I have been able to give them a copy and know that they will be able to review it for themselves. It is also useful for them to take away and show others such as friends or family to help them understand.”

ANONYMOUS GP

“The fact sheets are excellent. I have downloaded them all to share at work and with my clients, and just about everywhere that is appropriate!”

ANONYMOUS

“The fact sheets are a brilliant introduction, sometimes I feel like printing off a whole stack and just dropping them around the community because I wish everyone knew this stuff!”

ANONYMOUS

“I have used the Blue Knot Foundation fact sheets in counselling and have handed them out to my patients. I was able to really develop more of an understanding of how patients were feeling, and became more thoughtful.”
