Child Health

The Children Count Pilot Study Project

In 2017, the Children Count Pilot Study Project Team set out to explore the feasibility of coordinated monitoring and assessment of child and youth health, utilizing the school climate survey, to address local health data gaps. Six school board and public health unit pairings piloted the Healthy Living Module as part of the school board’s school climate survey in the 2018/19 academic year. The Healthy Living Module included 17 questions on mental health, healthy eating, and physical activity.
