Bridgehaven’s health education and relationship education is passionate about seeing young people thrive. We believe that all youth deserve a happy and healthy future. We want children and young adults to reach optimal living, have strong relationships, and avoid risk behaviors that may lead to unhealthy consequences. We present students in our community with research and evidence-based reasons to strive for high standards of living. When encouraged to reach high expectations and equipped with tools to get them there, young adults can thrive. Our philosophy for preventing unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, and emotional trauma, is not merely reducing the possibility, but rather eliminating the risk.
Our Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) programming offers hope for all people, regardless of their past sexual experiences and encourages participants to seek out the best, healthiest habits and behaviors for their lives. Our message is always one of hope. Our team focuses on trauma-informed approaches that leave shame and guilt of past experiences in the rearview. We aim to focus on character building while also reinforcing attributes of healthy relationships, encouraging positive communication skills, and building an understanding of what real love looks like in dating and marriage relationships.

Research indicates that social connection improves physical health, mental health, and emotional well-being. It is for these reasons and more that we are driven to promote healthy, positive relationships and believe they are the foundation of whole person health. Sexual and reproductive health is taught in tandem with relationship education that is research and evidence-based.
Youth or student groups
Bridgehaven educators are available to talk directly with student groups, on your campus or ours. Programming is flexible and can be personalized to accomplish your specific objectives.
Parents and Professionals Working with Youth
Educators, Youth Leaders, and more.
We’re also available to equip and empower parents and other adults who work directly with youth to be able to talk with young people about relationships, sex, and the pressures they’re facing. Talking to teenagers can be tough, but we’re here to help. Presentations can be tailored to your group’s needs, location, and allotted time.
Relationships take work. None of us is where we are today without a little effort and without the supports of people who care. Bridgehaven’s relationship mentors are here to provide coaching, education, and support for teens and young adults.
