How to talk to young people about relationships sexual health, drugs and alcohol

As a parent/carer, your children expect you to have the answers to most things. This is a high expectation to live up to, and can leave you wondering how to answer some of the more difficult questions.

The St Helens Healthy Living team are here to support you in answering some of those difficult questions. The TAZ outreach team (Relationships and sexual health service for young people) and YPDAAT (The Young Peoples Drug and Alcohol Team); have created a one off briefing session to help parents/carers to address questions around relationships, sexual health, drugs and alcohol.

The programme is free for parents and carers to attend and aims to:

  • Build your confidence in discussing some of the difficult questions children ask about Relationships, Sexual Health, Drugs and Alcohol, with consideration to a child’s age, experience and ability.
  • Provide knowledge of local sexual health and drugs & alcohol services for young people.
  • Identify further opportunities to develop or build on your existing knowledge of the above issues.
  • Allow parents to have an awareness of the links between substance use and sexual health choices.

If you are interested in booking on the course please email your details to ypdaat@sthelens.gov.uk or call 01774 677990 and ask for the Young Peoples Drug and Alcohol Team.
