Know Your Stuff – a new Sexual Health Booklet for young people and parents.
The topic of sexual health and relationships is a very important issue and based on our experience of working with young people in Waterford it was decided that the production of a sexual health booklet would be of benefit to young people and parents alike.
Sexual health and relationships is such a broad topic. The booklet is not intended to be a compressive answer to all the topics but rather a starting point for information. The booklet seeks to provide current and up to date information on topics such as relationships, puberty, reproductive system, sexuality, dealing with a breakup, consent, on-line safety and contraception to name but a few. Links to other resources are included within the booklet to assist young people and parents to access further information on each of the topics.
Young people and parents were consulted and their feedback influenced the design, layout and content of the booklet. We hope that Know Your Stuff is easy to read and will act as a reference point for information and a conversation starter. The booklet will be available to youth groups, schools, informal education settings, libraries, etc. The booklet will be available in limited numbers in hard copy and is available to download here
