Sexual Health Training

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Promotions Team has an ongoing commitment to build the capacity of our community to be health promoting across all areas of health and wellbeing.

We are proud to be partnering with YFoundation to bring the Sticky Stuff Training Program to Western Sydney University campuses.

What is Sticky Stuff Training? 

Sticky Stuff is a one-day training program that aims to increase the confidence, knowledge and skill of those who work with young people on the topic of sexual health.The program is a collaboration between Yfoundations, NSW Health’s Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) Programs Unit and NSW Health's HIV and the HIV and Related Programs (HARP) Teams of our Local Health Districts.

Participants engage in a series of activities to develop a better understanding of the multiple issues experienced by young people. Through these activities participants develop skills and collaborate on service planning to build their capacity to engage young people meaningfully in sexual health conversations.
