Transcript of At-Risk Youth

At-Risk Youth
How do we define "at-risk"?
Three major indicators of risk:
low soci-economic status (mother's education)
mental health issues
issues with grade retention (academic failure)
Low Socio-economic status
Impedes the school readiness of preschool children.
Reduces the likelihood of success in educational achievement.
Reduces the ability to afford postsecondary education.
Increases the likelihood of living in low-income circumstances as an adult.

(Mental) Health:
School disconnectedness in ONTARIO is correlated with poor health behaviours like physical inactivity and physician visits (Faulkner et al., 2009)
Adolescents whose parents consistently report low income during childhood are approx. 1.5 times more likely to engage in self-harm. (Page et al. 2012)
Mindfulness Pilot Study
Mental Health:
Suicide accounts for 24% of all deaths among 15-24 year olds
The mortality rate due to suicide among men is four times the rate among women.
