Why choose TMTC courses

There are now many training courses in the area of suicide prevention and wellbeing being offered in Aotearoa – New Zealand. So why choose to attend a TaylorMade course over the others.

That is not to say that people who have had no suicide prevention training would not benefit from attending a TMTC workshop.
