Sexuality

What is sexual health and why is positive sexual health important?

Do you feel confused or unsupported when it comes to your sexual identity?

Are you having difficulty talking to your loved ones about your sexuality?

Sexual health is important for everyone’s physical and psychological well-being. Having positive sexual health involves not only looking after your physical well-being, but also includes the right to healthy and respectful relationships, access to health services that are safe and inclusive, and living your life free from discrimination, stigma, coercion and violence. Sometimes the negative events we experience can create barriers to positive sexual health, impact our self-esteem, and prompt internal conflict, having a detrimental effect on our psychological well-being.

Depression

Depression

Do you feel depressed?

Do you sometimes feel you ”can’t be bothered”?

Do you feel like you are in a fog?

If you answered yes to many of these questions you may be experiencing a depressive episode. There are many forms of depression.  Some people display consistently low or flat mood while others may not be able to enjoy once enjoyable aspects of life.   If you are depressed, keep in mind that you are not alone. Depression is an extremely common issue. Approximately 20 percent of the population may experience a depressive episode at least once in their life.

Anxiety

Anxiety

Are you a worrier?

Do you worry too much about life events such as work, health or relationships?

Worry and anxiety can make you feel uneasy and effect your concentration, sleep, memory and confidence. You may be unable to relax or enjoy once enjoyable activities. Excessive worry also leads us to being indecisive and doubt ourselves.

Learning to tame anxiety can be an amazing relief for the anxious person. Learning to tone down their anxiety to enable them to be in control of it rather than feeling controlled by it is very possible.
