Relationships Australia: Renovate Your Relationship Toolkit

Renovate Your Relationship

 

 
This booklet offers a toolkit-approach towards making a plan, following the instructions and coming out with a useful set of outcomes...
 

Finding useful ways to engage men in positive approaches towards health produces good outcomes for men, their partners, families and communities.

This booklet has been produced in a partnership between Crisis Support Services (MensLine) and Relationships Australia. It works on the basis that men often turn to 'instructions' when things are not going so well.

Until now, there has been no easily accessible, instructional guide for men on relationships, especially around managing existing relationships in a practical, positive way. This booklet offers a toolkit-approach towards making a plan, following the instructions and coming out with a useful set of outcomes.
