SAYCW works to ensure that schools and communities are connected to the resources that they need to understand survey reports and to take meaningful action on them. This includes support in understanding report findings, identifying potential partners, theme-specific resources for action, an action planning guide, and funding.
This Community Action Plan Template is a helpful document to guide you through the steps needed, using your SAYCW survey report, to take action on youth health and well-being in your school or community!
Support youth and community well-being through the collaborative action of community partners working together. Through evidence, tools and resources, SAYCW supports stakeholders to turn the knowledge gained through the youth health survey into health promoting action.
Youth-focused Mental Health Action Report shines light on challenges and ignites movement for solutions
A new report released this week is bringing attention to mental health challenges faced by more than 10,000 youth across the province—and actions at the grassroots level to ignite change.
This report provides a brief review of the scientific literature on COVID-19 and its effects on youth health, with particular emphasis on mental health. SAYCW shares relevant data from the pre-pandemic, 2019 SAYCW survey – these findings show how stressors and unhealthy behaviours that have been worsened by the pandemic (e.g., worry, connection with others, screen time, etc.) had impacted Saskatchewan youths’ health and well-being prior to the pandemic. Suggested health promotion actions to help mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and improve youth health and well-being are also shared.
