Services

The Sexuality, Sexual Health and Relationships Education (SHARE) program aims to increase positive attitudes, knowledge, skills and behaviour intention associated with sexuality, sexual decision making, sexual health and relationships among students studying and living at UWA.

The program also aims to make students more aware of, and comfortable in accessing UWA and external sexual health services.

Sexuality

Sexuality is a central feature of being human and here you can find information and support available to help you if you have any questions on sexuality and sexual orientation. 

Sexual health

Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well being in relation to sexuality and relationships; it is not merely the absence of disease.

It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.

Relationships education

We can help improve your knowledge and skills around relationships. It is important to learn how to have a healthy relationship through open communication. It is also important to be aware of unhealthy relationships and know how to handle conflict. You can ask a question where you can submit a relationship question confidentially which will be answered by an experienced counsellor.

SHARE was developed by the Health Promotion unit within the UWA Medical Centre. It was established in 2006 by funding from Healthway and the Australian Health Promotion Association (WA Branch).
