Cannabis

and Pregnancy

There is no amount of cannabis that is known

to be safe during pregnancy. It is important that

people understand the negative effects that cannabis

can have before, during, and after pregnancy.

To help enable individuals to make healthy choices and informed decisions
regarding their personal reproductive health, the Prevention Institute has
created a smart phone app, Keep it Safe Saskatchewan (KIS-SK), focused
on contraceptives and STIs.

Topic Areas

Alcohol/FASD

Alcohol/FASD

The majority of Canadians use alcohol at social events, with meals, or because they like the taste and how it makes them feel. Alcohol, even with moderate use, can affect fertility, and increase a person’s risk for cancers (e.g., breast, esophagus), heart disease, stroke, depression, or injury. Alcohol affects men, women, and young people differently.

Child Development

Child Development

We can all help children develop the skills that they need for healthy development in early childhood.

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

Young children are especially vulnerable during incidences of intimate partner violence because they are small, unable to protect themselves, and likely to be home when conflict is occurring.

Infants

Infants

New parents should educate themselves and seek out resources on appropriate care and safety techniques such as rear-facing, properly installed car seats, laying a baby on his or her back to sleep, taking time to just play with baby, and breastfeeding.

Mental Health

Mental Health

Mental health is key to our well-being. We can’t be truly healthy without it. It involves how we feel, think, act, and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about realizing our potential, coping with the normal stresses of life, and making a contribution to our community.

Oral Health

Oral Health

Pregnant women are prone to dental problems because elevated hormone levels cause gums to swell, bleed, and trap food. Up to 30% of pregnant women have advanced forms of periodontal disease (severe gum disease).

Parenting

Parenting

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute strives to raise awareness, increase knowledge, and promote attitudes and best practices that assist parents to raise healthy, safe, and happy children.

Passenger Safety

Passenger Safety

Injury and death to children in motor vehicle collisions is of significant concern in Saskatchewan. A critical prevention component is the correct and consistent use of child restraints. The Prevention Institute provides provincial training of child passenger safety technicians and education to other professionals and the public on this important topic. The goal of this program is to reduce death and injury to children resulting from motor vehicle crashes.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy

This topic provides evidence-based resources and current best practices to ensure the healthiest outcomes for a woman and her baby before, during, and after pregnancy, focusing on areas such as environmental health, maternal healthy weight, and maternal oral health.

Safety

Safety

Injuries are preventable, yet approximately 69 children die each year in Saskatchewan due to injury. The goal of this topic area is to raise awareness of injury risks and best practices to reduce the number of injury-related deaths and decrease the risk of life-altering injury.

Sexual Health

Sexual Health

Sexual health is concerned with the well-being of individuals. It recognizes that individuals have responsibilities, and are affected by each other and by the social environment in which they live. Sexual health education is one important aspect of health promotion.

Tobacco

Tobacco

Tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke can lead to many health concerns. The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute offers information on the effects of exposure to tobacco smoke for youth. Preventing exposure to tobacco smoke is one of the ways that youth can promote and support long-term health.

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute is a non-profit organization, founded in 1980. Our focus is to reduce the occurrence of disabling conditions in children using primary prevention methods. We raise awareness by providing training, information, and resources based on current best evidence.

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute believes that children of all abilities have the right to the best physical, social, and emotional health possible.
