Healthy Relationships Awareness Week 2022


November 14–19, 2022


Dal's first ever Healthy Relationships Awareness Week
Student Health Promotion in collaboration with campus and community partners is hosting Dal's first annual Healthy Relationships Awareness Week!

Fostering a culture of safer sexual health practices and healthy relationships
Healthy Relationships Awareness Week (HRAW) aims to help Dal and Kings students improve their well-being by learning about how to build a healthy relationship with yourself, as well as building, maintaining and navigating healthy relationships with others. This week will promote strategies, supports and services aimed to improving your relationships and sexual health!

A week focused on all things healthy relationships and sexual health
Themes for this year's HRAW will include: fostering a healthy relationship with oneself and partner(s), setting healthy boundaries, consent, sex-positive language, and safer sexual health practices.

Attend events and win prizes!
Each time you attend an event during Healthy Relationships Awareness Week, you'll be entered for a chance to win one of two $100 gift cards from your choice of Venus Envy, Nature Folk Spa or Floatation Centre, or a DSU Survivor Support Centre gift basket (includes a $100 Venus Envy gift card)!
