The Community Action Plan Template is a starting point to think about the SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey data in your region, what areas your community would like to work on and benefit from, and what resources and steps you’ll need to make it happen. Please read and reference this guide to learn how to make the most of your efforts to improve youth health and well-being.
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.
