Sexual & Mental Health Care for the Illawarra, NSW Area


The general practice management of sexual health covers physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality and not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity.

Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. According to the World Health Organization’s working definition, for sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled. As community-based health practitioners, general practitioners are vital to the maintenance of individual sexual health.

Mental Health


Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
