This video is for Aboriginal parents and caregivers. It offers real stories from Aboriginal families who have smoke-free homes. The families talk about the approaches that worked for them. The purpose of the video is to: 1) discuss the impact of second-hand smoke on young families; 2) understand the difference between sacred use of traditional tobacco and recreational use of commercial tobacco; and 3) share strategies to reduce the impact of recreational use of tobacco on children. This video includes a Facilitator’s Guide.
Your Choices Matter Facilitator’s Guide
Guide and Manual, Revised 2020
In conjunction with the Your Choices Matter Video, the Facilitator’s Guide can be used to engage youth and communities to have conversations about health and behaviour choices that they are making today to ensure the best health outcome for themselves and their future children. The guide provides background information and several lesson plans, which can be used in the classroom or in a group setting, to address the various topics introduced in the video.
While the Your Choices Matter Video is meant to introduce the topic of infant mortality and health behaviours, the lesson plans are a way to take this a step further. Each lesson addresses common risk factors for infant mortality and can help guide discussion about the impact of these risk factors for youth today and in the future, and for their future children. Each lesson has been linked to the Saskatchewan Curriculum and, where applicable, includes marking rubrics.Download the Your Choices Matter Lesson PlansSKU: 2-120
HIV…it’s Different Now.
Saskatchewan continues to have high rates of HIV infection. Due to the availability of antiretroviral medication, HIV is no longer classified as a death sentence, but is instead seen as a manageable chronic disease. Women who are living with HIV are faced with many challenges when they discover they are pregnant, are pregnant and discover they are living with HIV, or are considering having a baby while living with HIV.
This poster shares the message that with appropriate treatment and prenatal care, women living with HIV can have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.SKU: 7-019
