The Friends of RAW network has been created in consultation with key industry stakeholders, to address an unmet need from frontline workers experiencing individuals sharing the harsh impact of situational stressors and mental health challenges. The network is designed to empower individuals to bridge the gap and act as a conduit to connect people into RAW’s one on one support.
