‘On the Couch’ aims to get up close and personal with a panel of speakers who will be hosted by a facilitator around the subject area of Injecting Drug Use.
The intention is for this to be a safe space, but nonetheless, one where the audience can ask questions and engage freely.
We look forward to working with you during the workshop and sharing our collective knowledge and experience. Afternoon tea will be provided.
‘On the Couch’-Injecting Drug Use is a collaborative initiative between Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, Healthy Cities Illawarra, Watershed, First Step Program & NSW Users & AIDS Association.
Check out the brand new CaddyShack Project clips from our recent Summer Tour!
This year we not only asked young people about their experience of being involved in the CaddyShack Project’s Chlamydia screening activity, but also what sexual health means to them, their experience of sex ed, as well as some fun stuff J
Look out for more clips coming out over the next few weeks. They’ll also be posted on our facebook page (search thecaddyshackproject) and on our Youtube channel.
Here’s the first clip – “What does sexual health mean to you?”
Thanks to the HARP Unit ISLHD, Healthy Cities Illawarra & the Illawarra and Shoalhaven Sexual Health Service for coordinating the Project activity, Alex & Daniel at Xander productions for assisting with the film clips, Kiama Youth Centre, Ulladulla Youth Centre, Shellharbour Council Youth Services, and all the young people involved for making the Project so successful!
