The Lifespan Tool is a survey that can help you to think about the whole of your life. What do you feel good about? What are you concerned about? What do you want to change?

The Lifespan Tool is based on the medicine wheel and the determinants of health.


The Lifespan Tool has been designed by people directly or indirectly impacted by sexual abuse or violence. Once you launch the tool, you will find a series of 20 statements that cover different areas of your life. Using the toggle, you can identify your concerns and also things you feel good about in each area.

The results are private and intended to provide a snapshot of where you are today. We hope that you will find this useful in making decisions about how to move forward in your life. If you decide to explore what you might do to address your concerns, you will find three options behind each Lifespan statement:

  1. Strategies used by other people to deal with specific issues
  2. Supports that are available online and in the community
  3. Services in London and Middlesex that you can contact
