Thank you for this wonderful resource and the subsequent telephone conversations I've had with Sue. My son, who suffers from Schizophrenia found himself charged with very minor offences and my wife and I were completely lost. Your website helped us understand what we were in for. Thank you once again.

Thanks so much for your recent training. In North Queensland we aren't always provided with the training opportunities that those in the south-east corner enjoy. I found your training exceptionally good, but challenging at the same time. There is so much we need to do to make sure the system doesn't unnecessarily marginalise people with a disability.
