How are young people in Quebec?

Fondation Jeunes en Tête is happy to present its first Portrait of youth wellbeing, a project driven by our desire to uncover the actual state of teenagers in Quebec, as very little data was available to the public.

In order to complete this major project and to guarantee the rigorousness of our approach, we worked hand in hand with the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) and the Observatoire Jeunes et Société

These 6 dimensions were studied in order to sketch a realistic and complete portrait of the wellbeing of adolescents in Quebec:

What makes our study unique is the geographical segmentation of our data, which allows us to analyze the 11-to-17-year-old adolescents of each region of Quebec separately.  The findings of this study will enable schools, organizations and other stakeholders in the field to better understand today’s adolescents, in order to better support them in the challenges they face.

By uniting our strengths and our actions to prevent, raise awareness and aid, we can significantly reduce the number of young people affected by psychological distress, a factor at the heart of many issues adolescents are faced with and a key element in their wellbeing.

Portraits by region

The portrait of all of Quebec is not a compilation of all its regions.
It allows us to observe more information relative to the province in general
(the data is not geographically segmented).
