The conditions we are facing with the Coronavirus outbreak are unprecedented and challenging for us all.
At Raise we are extremely concerned about the impact on our young people. We know young Australians are feeling incredibly anxious and isolated, and many are increasingly being exposed to severe health and financial concerns of their families and friends.
We also know that having access to a neutral positive role model in the form of a trusted adult outside of their immediate sphere is the most significant contributing factor for mental wellbeing in young people. They really need access to our mentoring programs.
