Counselling and Support

Are you being harmed?

If you are a young person being sexually assaulted, or if you know of a young person who you believe is being sexually assaulted, then please contact Police or the Child Protection Authorities in your state.

You can also contact Bravehearts confidential support line toll free on 1800 272 831 if you are concerned about a young person being harmed or at risk of harm. However, as Bravehearts focus is in the best interest of the child, it is important to note that we are mandatory reporters and will report to the relevant authorities any concerning information received in relation to a child or young person deemed to be at risk. If you are concerned or have questions about the information you wish to share please discuss this during your initial contact. Call us toll free on 1800 272 831 during the hours of 8.30am-4.30pm Monday to Friday AEST (Please note hours vary on public holidays.)

We have counsellors ready to speak with you during these hours.
