Oasis Mental Wellness offering free sex education class for teens

This Saturday, Oasis Mental Wellness is partnering with the Mississippi Department of Human Services to host a sex education workshop for teens.

Oasis Mental Wellness provides mental health counseling to help families, parents, children, and adolescents cope with difficulties and issues that may be too much for them to handle alone.

This weekend’s workshop will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about sex health in a safe environment.

Professionals will discuss things like human development, relationships, sexual behavior, and sexual health. Licensed Professional Counselor Joan Hampton said, “When you don’t sit down and have those conversations you leave the world to educate them. So, we are having a safe space so that we can open up and educate them on what we want them to know and give them a safe space to answer those questions that they may have. Nothing is off limits.”

The classes for this Saturday’s workshop are already filled, but there will be more in the future.
