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.


Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is the lead agency for the headspace satellite service in Sale, Victoria, which commenced online and telephone service delivery on 15 July 2020.

The headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation provides tailored and holistic mental health support to 12 - 25 year olds from 110+ centres across Australia and through the eheadspace national online and phone support service.

headspace centres act as a one-stop shop, providing free (or low cost) support for young people who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support.

The headspace Sale satellite service is managed and governed by parent centre headspace Bairnsdale, which is operated by lead agency RAV, in partnership with a range of local service providers comprising the headspace Bairnsdale Consortium.
