TALK SOON. TALK OFTEN

Sometime parents and carers can be so concerned about getting it right, perfectly right, that they end up saying nothing at all. Young people in today’s society have to navigate and negotiate a lot more around sex than ever before.

Talk soon. Talk often is an information session with Naomi Viret, Sexual Health Education Officer from the HIV & Related Programs (HARP) Unit and Noeline Bedford, Clinical Nurse Specialist, from the Illawarra Shoalhaven Sexual Health Service. Attendees will receive a free copy of the book Talk soon. Talk often.
