Vancouver, Washington—March 11, 2019—Join the Prevent Coalition at its April 11 community event to learn about the most prevalent issues affecting the health of adolescents in Clark County.
Epidemiologists from Clark County Public Health will focus on data collected from Clark County 10th graders as part of the 2018 Healthy Youth Survey, which is completed every two years statewide. Topics will include general health and wellness, substance use, depression, bullying, suicide, drug and alcohol use, and more.
In addition to gaining an insider’s view of issues affecting local youth, attendees will benefit from considering whether their activities, projects and interventions remain relevant to today’s youth. The Healthy Youth Survey data, which will be available after publication later in March at www.askhys.net, is used by prevention, education and public health organizations statewide to guide policy and programs.
The Healthy Youth Survey is a collaborative effort of Washington’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Department of Social and Health Service’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, and the Liquor and Cannabis Board.
