Sexual health is a very important part of our health throughout life. When there are issues with our sexual health it can impact many other aspects of our physical, mental and emotional well-being and our relationships with other people.
It is important to take ownership of our sexual health and seek help and advice to support our decision making. Practising safer sex will not only help reduce the risk of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) but will also help prevent against an unplanned pregnancy.

NSPCC PANTS Campaign
NSPCC, the Public Health Agency NI and Western Health Social Care Trust came together to roll out the Talk PANTS! campaign across the WHSCT area with the aim of empowering parents and professionals to have simple age-appropriate conversations with children aged 4-8 years old about staying safe from abuse.
The PANTS tools and resources give adults simple ways to open these conversations in a clear and child-friendly way to give children confidence and knowledge. The key messages are:
- P – Privates are privates.
- A – Always remember your body belongs to you.
- N – No means no.
- T – Talk about secrets that upset you.
- S – Speak up, someone can help.
