2016-2017 Annual Report
Today, the Government of Saskatchewan proudly announced the launch of the #WhoWillYouHelpSK sexual violence and abuse awareness campaign. This social media campaign speaks out against sexual violence and abuse and calls on all citizens to value and protect people, particularly vulnerable women and girls, from these crimes.
The message of the campaign is conveyed through a powerful video which demonstrates everyone’s responsibility to intervene in situations where they witness sexual violence or abuse. Over the next few weeks, this video, along with the hashtag #WhoWillYouHelpSK, will appear on television, in movie theatres and through Facebook and YouTube advertising. You can view the video on the Government of Saskatchewan Facebook page.
Saskatchewan has an unacceptable rate of interpersonal violence and abuse, including domestic and sexual violence. All citizens, communities and government can play a role in ending such violence. As part of the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth, the government is committed to building safe communities and a better quality of life for all citizens. The #WhoWillYouHelpSK campaign encourages everyone to be a voice for those who have, or may become, victims of sexual violence and abuse.
I encourage Ministry of Justice employees and our partners to join the conversation by sharing the video on social media, using the hashtag #WhoWillYouHelpSK.

One way to understand the development of resilience is to picture a balance scale or seesaw. Protective experiences and adaptive skills on one side counterbalance significant adversity on the other. Watch this video to visualize the science of resilience, and see how genes and experience interact to produce positive outcomes for children.
