SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Report – 2019 Survey Findings

The SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Report – 2019 Survey Findings was released in November 2020.

This report shares important descriptive data – like the percentage of youth who vape or binge drink – but it also identifies demographic groups and/or factors that increase, decrease, or mitigate negative health and well-being. This report describes WHAT is happening with youth health and well-being, WHY these statistics matter, HOW they connect to other survey topics, WHO is at greatest risk (and are in greatest need of additional support and resources), and WHERE youth, parents, and other stakeholders can go for support.

A Summary Report of the 2019 Survey Findings is available in English and French.

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.
