Effect of Pandemic on Youth Mental Health 'Cannot be Overstated': Advocate's Report

Jessie Anton - CBC News

Saskatchewan's advocate for children and youth released her 2021 annual report this week, highlighting the continued pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic on kids' mental health. 

"It has become very clear how badly Saskatchewan's young people need our help," Lisa Broda wrote in her advocate's message at the start of the document, which was published Wednesday — just weeks after her office released a special report outlining youth mental health issues.  


"It cannot be overstated that the aftermath of this pandemic has resulted in serious impacts on children and youth in their overall mental and emotional well-being."
