Understanding your results
The purpose of this survey is to help you step back and take a broad look at your life. What areas of your life do you feel fulfilled? What areas need more attention? You may choose to share these results with your partner, family, trusted friend, health care provider or counselor. If you feel stuck or unsure about what to do next to address an issue, it might be a good time to seek help (see When to Seek help and Resource page). MRMC’s Men’s Mentoring Circle can be a helpful place to further explore some of these concerns (See MRMC services).
