Community action meeting, November 24 2022

On Thursday, November 24th, Planet Youth Lanark County and the Carleton Place Municipal Drug Strategy hosted a Community Action Meeting. It presented the results of February 2022 surveys of Lanark County grade 10 students. Reports about substance use, physical and mental health, physical activity, family and school experience, internet use, etc, were available for each municipality.

Speakers included Dr. Linna Li, Medical Officer of Health and Mr. Hlynur Guðjónsson, Icelandic ambassador to Canada.

The goal of these reports is to provide information that helps each Lanark County community address selected risk and protective factors. The meeting will also be a chance for youth, parents, school staff, youth leaders, community organizations, municipal staff & councils to hear how strategies implemented in other communities are making a measurable difference in supporting healthier communities for children to grow up in.
