what people say
Rikki Turner is a dedicated professional whose insights and compassionate approach made a big difference in the lives of the many cadets and members of my staff who got the opportunity to participate in her training program over 4 days at Texas A&M. The hard hitting facts she provided, and the truly effective tools she provided all of us have already proven beneficial to us as we continue to deal with this critical issue on a daily basis. She brings first hand experience, an educators perspective, and a personable, compassionate approach that immediately breaks down barriers and opens the door to some difficult, but necessary discussion about this national crisis. We are ALL better informed and better prepared as a result of the time we spent with Rikki, and we are all grateful for her insights and ideas about how we can more effectively deal with people in crisis. Our cadets and staff have overwhelmingly said that it was some of the best training they have received, and that we need to bring Rikki back for more in the future. We WILL invite her back to continue this effort to better inform both our cadets and our staff about the issue of suicide – and we will ALL be better for it. A BIG thanks to Rikki for a job extremely well done!
