There are numerous options available to support you regardless of what stage in your rehabilitation you are at. Transitioning officers generally require support in line with one of the following pathways:

  1. Wellness

    Individuals who remain quite symptomatic and require ongoing assistance in the form of treatment and support.

  2. Transition Support

    Individuals who are doing ok but are unsure about their options upon leaving NSWPF.

    EML can arrange recognition of prior learning and training courses to build upon your existing skills.

    Contact your Case Manager who will talk you through the services best suited to your needs.

  3. Career Development

    Individuals who have a good idea about what they want to do next and just need some help with things like formalising qualifications, resume writing and applying for jobs.

We have worked hard to identify quality support services that are fit for purpose regardless of which pathway you feel you are on. Please take the time to review the information provided below and speak to your EML Case Manager for more information.
