SRH Week 2018

The 15th annual national Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) Week is just around the corner! This year we’re focussing on the theme of ‘Minding our Business’:  Sexual Health & Mental Wellness. This theme highlights the interconnectedness of mental health and sexual health in our bodies and within our communities.

Join us February 12-16 as we explore this connection through events, resources and  a special valentine’s day treat from us to you. There are a variety of SRH week events planned in Winnipeg and Brandon. Use the hashtag #SRH2018 to join the conversation about sexual health & mental wellness!
