It’s important to us that we actively ensure our services are safe and inclusive for everyone. We provide general comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services as well as more LGBTIQA+ focused programs such as our inclusion training for professionals. We want you to receive a respectful and inclusive service whether you access our clinical service, see a counsellor, engage in professional education or contact our Sexual Healthline.
Our clinical teams at SHINE SA include doctors, registered nurses/midwives and counsellors.
For sexual and reproductive health services, you can make an appointment or drop into a clinic. Counselling services are available for individuals, couples and families including support around gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Telephone appointments can be requested.
SHINE SA provides dedicated training for LGBTIQA+ inclusion.
In addition, many of our sexual and reproductive health courses include gender diversity and sexual diversity.
The Gender Wellbeing Service provides counselling and a peer support program for people who are transgender, gender diverse and gender questioning, their family members, partners and supports.
SHINE SA’s Gender Connect Country SA is a free service for people living in country SA. The service provides confidential support from peer workers with lived experience of gender diversity.
There is a range of different support groups and services run by other organisations. They are open to people of different ages, sexualities and gender identities. Some are simply social, while others may include health promotion.
