Primary Data Collection: The Well-Being and Experiences (WE) Study

The WE Study aims to learn more about the health, well-being and experiences of adolescents, parents and families in Manitoba. The goal of the project is to improve health and well-being for adolescents and their families by learning about their positive and adverse experiences and how they relate to mental health, physical health and education, social, and justice outcomes. The baseline data collection is currently underway. Our goal is to collect data on 1,000 adolescents aged 14 to 17 years old, paired with 1,000 parents or caregivers.
