The transition from a military-focussed lifestyle to civilian life can pose different challenges over a number of years for some ex-service personnel, their families and friends.

The self-care strategies and tools on this website are general in nature, so anyone can benefit from them. You get to choose which Areas of your life you want to work on and in which order. Each Area contains a little bit of background information and an Interactive Worksheet that can be used to set goals and apply self-management strategies proven to work.

Areas are accessible from the Menu or from the Topics button while inside an Area. They are also accessible from your own personal Self-Management Plan.

If you need help in navigating this resource, please click Help.

Your Self-Management Plan automatically updates as you set your goals and decide on which strategies you will use. It allows you to set a review date when you can check your progress. However to save your progress, you will need to create an anonymous Log-In account. (Alternatively you can print out any of the Interactive Worksheets available on this site, and keep them for your own record.)

Would you like to see how you are travelling by completing an Optional Questionnaire? The results will help indicate if you could benefit from professional help beyond what this site can offer.

If you need professional help, please see Helpful Resources for more information or the Support Page in each Area. Helpful Resources also contains links to other websites that you may find useful.

Any Feedback you can give us about this resource is much appreciated. We hope you enjoy using this resource.
Have you got a Log-In ID for your own toolbox account?

You can choose to use this website without having a Log-In ID. However, the advantages of logging-on are that you will:

be able to track your scores on the Questionnaire over time
have your Self-Management Plan updated for each return visit
be returned to where you left off each time you log in. This will make progress through the activities much easier.

If you choose to have a Log-In ID you will also be helping us to better understand which parts of this website work best for most people, allowing the content to be refined over time.

Please be assured that if you do choose to have a Log-In ID, your information remains anonymous and confidential. Your Log-In password is encrypted and protected and not linked to any personally identifying details. No one will be attempting to track or identify you.
