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.


Through our Workplace Support Services, we can assist workplaces following a critical incident.


Critical incidents are unexpected or unplanned events that occur within a workplace, or affect individual employees or the workplace as a whole. These include the death of an employee, client or customer, assaults, threats, workplace accidents, unforeseen workforce changes, and extreme climatic events such as bushfires and floods.

A timely response to critical incidents is vital to minimise negative outcomes associated with critical incidents, including stress, anxiety, absenteeism and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress.

We can provide a range of support options in the week following a critical incident, either on-site at your workplace or through our centres located across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

We can offer:

  • Group Debriefing – a structured group discussion facilitated by an experienced and qualified counsellor with expertise in critical incidents.
  • Individual Counselling – immediate (within one week) and follow-up counselling to support affected employees.
  • Management Training – training to support leadership teams to prepare for and respond quickly and appropriately after a critical incident.
