Positive Lifestyle Program (PLP)

Please note that the Positive Lifestyle Program is not a crisis support service. If you require immediate emotional support, we recommend calling Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visiting Beyond Blue.

The Salvation Army’s Positive Lifestyle Program (PLP) is a fully supported eight-module course that helps you gain a deeper understanding of who you are as a person. It aims to build self-awareness, self-esteem and assertiveness, while also exploring issues such as discontentment, fear, anger and fatigue. The program covers:

  • Self-awareness
  • Anger
  • Depression and loneliness
  • Stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Assertiveness
  • Self-esteem
  • Future directions

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

The Positive Lifestyle Program not only gives you the opportunity to explore important issues, but also offers personal support and care. In confidential one-on-one sessions with your trained facilitator, you will have the freedom to explore the issues that may be holding you back, and work through them to achieve healing and transformation.

You will be able to rely on your facilitator to support you and hold you accountable in a gentle and caring way and by the end of the program, you will have explored how to set your own realistic, achievable, and potentially life-changing goals.

“With the help of the program I have genuinely managed to turn my life around and grow as a person.” – William

The Positive Lifestyle Program truly changes lives.

Please contact your local Salvation Army Church, Centre or Salvos Store to see if this course is available in your area.
