We have received nothing but positive feedback about Dr. Mountain's presentation...she provides an excellent combination of structured information and personal stories, which serve to make the topic real. Our audience had a wide variation of knowledge, ranging from therapists and physicians to individuals coping with the loss of a loved one to suicide. No matter what the level of prior knowledge, audience members responded positively to Dr. Mountain's presentation, and walked away with a more in depth understanding. Executive Director Suicide Resource Center of Larimer County

Dr. Mountain spoke easily and powerfully about Bipolar Disorder. She was able to explain and bring hope to all those attending that were looking for answers....She can take such a difficult topic and bring her own personal story into play to bring it all into perspective for those in her audience....The feedback from attendees at the workshop this year was all extremely positive. Coordinator & Organizer for ORAN Conference.

We had much larger crowds than anticipated for both the citizens group and the professionals group. [Doctor Mountain] held the audiences' interest very well in both prsentations and altered the presentation very icely to fit the needs of the professional group...I have been in the field for over 20 years and I still learned from [her] willingness to share [her] own experiences. Division Director, Colorado West Regional Mental Health.

Having Jane Mountain speak to our Club on Friday was wonderful!!! I thoroughly enjoyed her as a person and her talk was excellent. As I mentioned to you on Friday....At least two or more of our Club members will have directly benefited from her presentation in terms of their own lives!!! President of local business association.

I wanted to thank you again for the classes that you gave. I really benefited from each of them, learning lots and identifying with many of the things you talked about. It was very helpful, and I do hope you offer others in the future. You are a great speaker with much knowledge! Seminar attendee.
