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.
