Building on our See Us, Hear Us 1.0 study, this project extends it to the future: investigating children/youth mental health into the second year of the pandemic.

Four questions are addressed:

  1. Are children’s and youth’s mental health and quality of life outcomes different in 2022 in comparison to the outcomes in April-July 2021?
  2. What coping strategies are utilized, if any, and what is the association between these coping strategies and mental health and quality of life outcomes?
  3. What role have mental health services played in helping young people deal with the challenges of the pandemic?
  4. How are sociodemographic characteristics (e.g., sex at birth, self-declared gender, disability, family income, culture/ethnicity, immigrant status) associated with these variables?

The ultimate aim is to provide evidence-based recommendations to decision-makers and practitioners that, if acted on, will improve the mental health well-being of children and youth in Saskatchewan.
