Children and youth comprise 40% of the Indigenous population in Canada. These young people face significant health inequities compared to their peers, especially those living on-reserve. Data on health and well-being is needed to guide community policies, health services planning and evaluation that supports Indigenous communities on their path to health and well-being. This evidence to promote better health outcomes is lacking. This webinar will focus on the development of the Aaniish Naa Gegii: A Children's Health and Well-being Measure (ACHWM) to illustrate how the voices and experiences of FNIM (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) children and youth were central to conceptualizing and designing a tool that is being used to collect data needed to promote wellbeing in a range of Indigenous communities across Canada.

The current overdose crisis and the new reality of cannabis legalization are underpinning a drive to re-examine the range of practices around substance use and their implications for YMHSU services. Given the acute extent of the overdose crisis, some stakeholders, including people with lived and living experience, have highlighted the critical need to increase community capacity to provide compassionate, non-judgmental harm reduction services. Through a webinar led by youth experts at Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP), attendees will be able to learn practical strategies for integrating harm reduction approaches into their services, as well as learning about the broader context of advocacy to reduce harms by removing criminal penalties surrounding drug use in Canada.
