Workshop Evaluation Comments

from the Suicide Prevention & Ethics 

Kelly Smyth-Dent, LCSW

Afternoon Topic: 

The Art of Mindfulness and Therapy

Morning Topic: 

“My Heart goes out to you" 

​Not burning out, but enhancing our resiliency and enthusiasm as we support people in addressing their critical life challenges-and create our workplaces to be healthy, kind, respectful and supportive.                                                        

We recently met Kelly [photographed left] and found her to be very inspiring, and driven to help those who struggle with trauma in their lives. Her smile and warm demeanor makes you want to smile with her. She's engaging and talented.  When we realized that these qualities were are just a fragment of who Kelly is, we decided to feature her in this segment.
