An Environmental Scan of Online Resources Related to Sexting
Sexting, the sending and receiving of sexual messages through technological devices like cell phones, is on the rise among youth. While there are debates about whether sexting is a normal form of sexual expression or a risky behaviour, education and support around sexting may help reduce negative consequences associated with sexting for youth. This report shares information about current, evidence-based, online resources focused on sexting and its impacts on youth. The information gathered through this environmental scan may be helpful to parents/guardians, youth, and educators seeking materials to educate themselves or the youth in their lives about sexting.
HIV…it’s Different Now.
Saskatchewan continues to have high rates of HIV infection. Due to the availability of antiretroviral medication, HIV is no longer classified as a death sentence, but is instead seen as a manageable chronic disease. Women who are living with HIV are faced with many challenges when they discover they are pregnant, are pregnant and discover they are living with HIV, or are considering having a baby while living with HIV.
This poster shares the message that with appropriate treatment and prenatal care, women living with HIV can have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.SKU: 7-019
