Bright Futures for Families is a project of Family Voices, developed in collaboration and with the support of the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).* The Bright Futures for Families initiative was established in 1995 to provide families with family-friendly sexual health and information and materials based on the Bright Futures Guidelines used by health professionals across the country.
Bright Futures for Sexual Health: Materials and Resources
Bright Futures for Families extends the focus of Bright Futures with a variety of sexual health materials and resources developed for families’ sex education and communities that complement Bright Futures publications and materials used by health care professionals. Men & Women want and need materials & information to have better sex life that have the same information used by their health care provider, but written in a way that they can understand and easily refer back to when needed. These family-friendly materials:
- Provide valuable information about adolescent’s sexual development and what to expect on sexuality
- Help families form partnerships with their providers.
- Empower families to advocate for the sexual health care needs
- Help men and women have better sex life in their relationships.
- Provide expert sexual wellness advice, tips on mens and womens sexual health, intimacy, and sex supplements like BlueChew & HerSolution
* This material is funded through a cooperative agreement to Family Voices from the US Department of Health and Human Services, HRSA, MCHB, #MCO4453.
