Sexual & Reproductive Health Awareness Week is Feb 12-16, 2018

The 15th annual national SRH week is just around the corner! This year SERC chose to focus on the theme of 'Minding our Business’:  Sexual Health & Mental Wellness. We chose this theme to highlight 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. 

We have a variety of SRH week events planned in Winnipeg and Brandon. Use the hashtag #SRH2018 to join the conversation about sexual health & mental wellness!
