The SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015 collected information on the health and well-being of students in Grades 7-12 in Saskatchewan. The primary purpose of the results reports is for participating schools and communities to learn more about the health and well-being of their youth, to connect with resources and partners in youth health and well-being, and to be able to act on the opportunities they see.
The SAYCW Youth Health Survey provincial-level report (released in 2016) is intended to provide readers with a snapshot of students’ health and health behaviours. It includes data from 8,832 students from 114 schools across the province. You can find the provincial report and other documents related to the provincial findings here.
The survey results of individual schools are shared only with that school and their school division or authority, though they are welcome to share their reports with community partners if they choose. If you are a stakeholder in youth health and well-being, and would like to be connected with interested schools in your region, contact our School-Community Engagement Coordinator.
In addition, higher-level reports have been prepared for school divisions and health regions. These reports include the results from participating schools that are within the school division or within the health region’s boundaries.

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.
