The Healthy Relationship program focuses on the primary prevention of sexual assault and violence against women and children and the health development of intimate relationships. It is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services and is guided by extensive informed research. Its target group is Year 9 students and teachers within Warrnambool and the Moyne Shire.
Some of the areas that are explored include:
- Health and unhealthy relationships
- Partner intimacy
- Sexual consent and decision making
- Violence and sexual assault
- Where to go for support
- Supporting a friend, and
- The bystander.
It aims to develop values, knowledge, and skills alongside personal awareness, self-esteem and confidence so that young people may make informed, respectful decisions in their intimate relationships and also be very clear what violence is and the non acceptance of it.
