connectEDspace - support for young people

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.

We're still here to support you

The current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is having a significant impact on all members of the community. It’s an unprecedented and challenging time, and our thoughts are with everyone who’s affected by the current circumstances.

The safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff members and the community is our priority. For this reason, we’re not currently providing face-to-face services, however we are committed to supporting people throughout the COVID-19 situation.

As such, we’re continuing to deliver many of our services through telephone and video appointments for our counselling and family dispute resolution (mediation) services, as well as through our online chat-based counselling.

We’re also using telephone and digital services to support young people through our headspace centres in Bairnsdale and Wonthaggi, and are providing ongoing support to our clients impacted by family violence.

If you’d like support during this time, either in relation to COVID-19 or for another issue impacting you, we’re here to help.

To make an appointment or to find out how we can assist you, contact your nearest centre.

You can also book an online, chat message-based counselling appointment.
