The Canadian Active After School Partnership (CAASP) is initiating a project to educate after school program leaders and decision-makers about promoting mental health for all children and youth,
specifically highlighting the link between mental health and participation in quality active after school programs.
The project will also provide targeted information for specific populations including girls and young women, Aboriginal children and youth, as well as children and youth with disabilities.
A short survey has been created as part of an environmental scan to identify mental health initiatives within the after school time period being led by community, provincial/territorial and national organizations.
Please take 10 minutes to complete the survey and share your organization’s mental health-related initiatives. The deadline to complete the survey is July 3, 2013.
