At Calgary Sexual Health Centre, we believe that every person needs love and intimacy, needs to know how to express and receive affection, has the right to explore his or her sexuality and has the right to sexual health information, regardless of ability.
Services We Offer
We offer a maximum of 6 sessions where our counsellors discuss sexuality and sexual health. Parents or support workers are encouraged to attend the session so they can reinforce and build on what was learned and discussed in the session. To book a one-on-one session call 403-283-5580 and press “1.”
Workshops & Training
For Support workers: Calgary Sexual Health Centre (CSHC) offers various professional development sessions throughout the year. A new session called “Supporting Healthy Sexuality in People with Developmental Disabilities” is available for individuals or groups. To register or find out more information, contact Becky VanTassel at email@example.com or 403-283-5580 ext. 323.
For Parents: CSHC offers workshops to parents of children with a disability on how to support healthy sexual development.
High School Education
CSHC provides sexual health education in CBE classrooms, and for over 10 years we have been providing an adapted sexual health education program to students with developmental disabilities in PLP, ALP and Access classes. If you think your child’s teacher might be interested in our education services, please feel free to give them our contact information. For high school education bookings, teachers can call us at 403-283-5580 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
