Converge International for RANZCOG
“Help-seeking is the process of finding and receiving support from others. We all experience tough times, but sometimes we can’t solve our problems by ourselves. Going through a difficult situation alone can be stressful, confusing and exhausting. At these times, seeking assistance from family, friends or others can really help”.
