Findings reflect the responses of 1915 youth in the 13 to 18 age range.
The findings from the HYIS provide our community with new, comprehensive data, informed by a youth engagement strategy, and validated by youth from across Halton. Now, it is time for organizations serving youth in Halton to move the data into action.
How can we improve the mental health of young people in Halton while ensuring that services are accessible and relevant?
Consider the conditions we want to see for youth mental health in Halton.
The findings from the HYIS suggest three key conditions we should strive for:
Explore and share the findings.
Have conversations about what the results mean, and how we can work together in Halton to respond to these findings.
This Data Action Bulletin posits a series of questions, or Data Actions, to guide discussion and, ultimately, action at your organization. Work through and discuss each question as a group. It is our vision that the conversations catalyzed by these questions will be unique to your organization and create pathways for mobilizing the data within your organization and our communities.
The following questions are a starting point for reflecting on the data in this Bulletin. More data can be found at OKN Data Portal.
How we achieve these outcomes will be determined by the actions we take, individually in our respective work, and collaboratively as a community. The Data Actions below are designed to guide discussion at your organization.
