SAYCW 2016 Provincial Youth Health Report
December 15, 2016 –
The 2016 SAYCW Provincial Youth Health Report is now available!
The Youth Health Survey was conducted last year by the Saskatchewan Alliance for Youth and Community Well-being (SAYCW) with youth in Grades 7 – 12. The survey asked a series of questions that included areas such as oral health, sun and ultraviolet radiation (UVR) safety, healthy weights, food security and nutrition, physical activity, sleep, mental health and well-being, tobacco, drug and alcohol use, and sexual health. The provincial report reflects the responses of more than 8,800 students in grades 7-12 from 114 schools throughout the province. This included rural, urban and on-reserve schools. It is meant to provide a snapshot of Saskatchewan students’ health.
The full report, a summary of findings in English and French, a technical appendix, and posters on physical health, community health, and mental health are available here.
