SAYCW 2019 Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities Survey Provincial Poster

June 27, 2019 –

The 2019 SAYCW Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities (TYTC) Survey Provincial Poster is now available!

The the Saskatchewan Alliance for Youth and Community Well-being (SAYCW) Thriving Youth, Thriving Communities (TYTC) Survey was conducted this year with youth in Grades 7 – 12. The survey asked a series of questions that included areas such as nutrition and food security, physical activity, sleep, mental health and well-being, tobacco use, drug and alcohol use, and sexual health. The Provincial Poster reflects the responses of over 10,400 students in Grades 7 – 12 from 162 schools across 19 school divisions and authorities throughout the province. This included rural, urban and on-reserve schools. It is meant to provide a snapshot of Saskatchewan students’ health and well-being.

The poster is available here and we encourage you to share it with your networks.


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.

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.
