The Canadian Active After School Partnership (CAASP) is starting a project to educate after school program leaders and decision-makers about promoting mental health for all children and youth, specifically highlighting the link between mental health and participation in quality active after-school programs. The project will also provide targeted information for girls and young women, Aboriginal children and youth, as well as children and youth with disabilities. A short survey has been created as part of an environmental scan to identify after-school mental health initiatives led by community, provincial/territorial and national organizations . The deadline to complete the survey is July 3, 2013.
