RAW helps build resilience and capacity of individuals, their families and the community, to react to challenging life experiences with particular emphasis on suicide prevention, mental health and well-being. 

RAW provides accessible and responsive support services to all rural communities. Assisting the community in the response to crisis, and help in recovering or coping after adversity. We establish structures and networks to assist individuals, families and communities to deal with suicide.

The RAW team aims to develop and implement strategies in communities to reduce the stigma associated with mental health, suicidal behaviour and people seeking help. With the cooperation and good will of community leaders, local community services and support groups, we can reduce the risk of suicide and respond appropriately in dire times.
