Young people can face all sorts of pressures – including problems at school, with friends or at home.
connectEDspace is a website by Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV), dedicated to young people to help provide all the information they need to deal with the stuff they go through each day.
Aboriginal Family and Relationship Support
RAV provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and individuals to help strengthen family relationships.
Counselling provides an opportunity to talk with a professionally trained person to discuss couple issues, conflicts with friends, relationship breakdown, parenting, domestic violence, anxiety, depression, grief, sexual problems, childhood sexual abuse, stress and work related tensions and disputes.
Reclaim is a dedicated support service for adults surviving child sexual abuse in organisational settings. The program has been funded by the Australian Government to support the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
At the Health Ed Annual Women’s Health Updates in 2016, our Practice Development Specialist Family Violence, Scott Mills, spoke about an important issue: family violence.
He presented on The Crucial Role of the General Practitioner (GP) in relation to family violence, noting that GPs are often the first point of contact for people affected by family violence.
Scott stated that “the importance of the role of the GP in creating a safe space can’t be underscored enough,” and he discussed issues for GPs to consider when treating patients who are perpetrators or victims of family violence.
Health Ed also interviewed Scott for two videos about the management of family violence, and the impact and prevalence of family violence in Victoria and Australia.
The presentation and two videos are available at the following links:
