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.


Men's roles and relationships are often the source of much discussion these days, as society shifts, changes, takes new directions and makes new demands. Men are partners, fathers, husbands, siblings, adult children of aging parents, single parents. All these have different features and demands.

Sometimes men need space to focus and reflect on their busy lives, and someone to help facilitate the questions about how things are working and what could work better.

At RAV, men can use our relationship support services to help them explore and review their lives through:

  • individual counselling
  • groups looking at how to understand themselves and their relationships
  • groups to assist with moving on when a relationship ends
  • parenting after separation groups
  • group work around issues such as anger and abuse.

Men often don't look at instructions, until something is seriously wrong. Don't wait until your relationship is in trouble. Use this manual as a set of instructions to renovate your relationship.

The following booklets were written to provide information and support for men going through separation and divorce.
