The Salvation Army’s Positive Lifestyle Program is a fully supported eight module course that helps you gain a deeper understanding of who you are as a person. With the program covering a wide range of topics, including:

  • self-awareness,
  • anger,
  • depression and loneliness,
  • stress,
  • grief and loss,
  • assertiveness
  • self-esteem,
  • future directions;

The Positive Lifestyle Program helps empower people to change their way of life and reach their true potential.

In confidential one-on-one sessions with a trained facilitator, you will find the freedom to open up about the issues that might be holding you back and work through them to achieve healing and transformation. By the end of the program, you will be able to set realistic, achievable goals and be able to rely on your facilitator to hold you accountable to them in a gentle, supportive way.

The Positive Lifestyle Program changes lives. It’s having someone come alongside you and believe in you. Because at The Salvation Army, we know that the journey is always better when shared.

How may the Positive Lifestyle Program benefit those experiencing difficulties in life?

It is a program for all people including those who, because of difficulties in their lives have lowered self-esteem, struggle with issues around anger, grief and loss.

It has been discovered after lengthy research that people suffering from stress and or depression or personal issues can have difficulty with relationships, are often disconnected from their community and experience problems in re-entering the work force.

How does a person become involved?

They may register on their own or be referred by persons such as a Welfare Officer, Salvation Army Chaplain, a Magistrate or an Employment Plus worker.
