Do you, or does someone you know, need help from Raise? We are here to help you in every way that we can. If the situation is one of crisis, please call 000 immediately for an ambulance, or call the Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800 to speak to a counsellor any time, 24 hours, 7 days per week.
At Raise, we believe in building community partnerships with organisations who have common aligned goals revolving around improving the health and wellbeing of Australian youth. We believe the following websites are very helpful in this regard, and could give you the answers you are looking for.
“if you want to have this baby we can support you with a mentor and workshops, if you don’t want this baby we can help you make an appointment at a clinic, and if you can’t decide we will sit with you until you can”
While Raise provides support for young mums through our Bump program, this does not mean that we only work with young women who decide to keep their babies when they fall pregnant. We also provide a counselling and mentoring service for girls who are pregnant and who are working through the turbulent time of trying to decide what to do. It can be difficult to talk to your family or friends in this circumstance, so we can provide a warm, professional and objective person to talk to while you consider your options.
Raise can assist you to:
– explore ways to speak to your parents, family and friends
– make an appointment with a kind female doctor
– identify and explore your options with regard to the pregnancy
– organise a termination
– discuss the requirements for adoption
– answer questions about pregnancy and parenting
If you, or someone you know, could be pregnant and would like to talk to someone confidentially, please call 0426 972 473 or send a private email to email@example.com and we can help you through this tough time.
Raise Foundation is a registered Australian charity which provides mentoring programs for young people in high schools and in the community. Our mentoring programs provide a community of support around young people. Mentoring from a positive role model during the critical teenage years provides a nurturing pathway for young people to feel supported.
