After attending a RAW Conversation at my workplace, I realised I needed RAW's support to navigate the overwhelming feeling of isolation, the pressures of farm life and motherhood
RAW was the friend I needed when I had no-where else to turn to
Due to a recent shearing injury, I was struggling to adjust to my lack of ability to work. I struggled with a feeling of purpose and RAW is helping me to adjust to what I now realise will only be temporary life situation.
Why RAW?

RAW Conversations change lives.

If you need help during one of life's harder seasons, or are concerned for someone you know, we encourage you to reach out to RAW.

No matter if you are out in the shearing shed, on the potato harvester, or navigating rural living with a newborn, RAW is available and we understand.

RAW is ‘non-clinical’, genuine and non-intrusive. Program support is confidential with no fees for participants.

RAW’s staff have first-hand experience with the complexities which come with living and/or working in rural and remote areas. Each has backgrounds in Tasmanian Dairy, Livestock, Cropping, Mining, Wool Production, Forestry, Seafood and more.

RAW's programs operate statewide in rural and remote Tasmanian locations. All programs operate with the same underlying suicide prevention framework.
