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.
Would you like to work for us? Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is a leading and valued provider of specialist family and relationship services. We are a community-based not-for-profit organisation, with no religious affiliations.
The frontline service is provided by RAV and the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Victoria, and has assisted more than 400 people with 2000 appointments since it was established in early 2020.
It is delivered with funding from Gippsland Primary Health Network (GPHN), which is leading the mental health response to bushfire affected areas of Gippsland.
“One year on from the bushfires and the people of East Gippsland are still working through the trauma, grief and loss they experienced – and now with summer upon us again there is added anxiety of what lies ahead,” RFDS Health Service Manager, Lauren Zappa said. “Thankfully, people are reaching out to our mental health clinicians who are supporting them through this difficult period.”
