New Report--Perceptions of Youth Health in Waterloo Region, Region of Waterloo Public Health & Emergency Services

Region of Waterloo Public Health & Emergency Services (Public Health) conducted focus groups with youth from across Waterloo Region in order to better understand youth’s attitudes, perceptions and experiences related to the following six health topics:

  • Healthy eating
  • Physical activity
  • Alcohol and substance use
  • Injury prevention
  • Mental health
  • Tobacco use

These focus groups were also used to better understand the types of issues and situations that youth experience, which make it easier or more difficult for youth to keep healthy and engage in healthy behaviours.
