The FASD Support Network of Saskatchewan will use funds for the development and distribution of a FASD newsletter as well as other resource material focused on parenting and mental health issues related to FASD while the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute will use the funds to help promote FASD awareness and support work regarding alcohol use and FASD awareness among post-secondary students and to continue regional FASD committees and the FASD Speakers’ Bureau.
The video above is called “Thank You, Mom” and was developed by youth for the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute’s Youth Action for Prevention Project. The youth wrote, filmed, acted, and created the music for the video. It was released this spring, just in time for Mother’s Day (May 8, 2011).
