What is CHAT?

The CYFAR Health Assessment Tool or CHAT, is a free, brief, picture-based, online, continuous improvement tool that assesses health behaviors of youth ages 6-18 years old. The purpose of this tool is to provide data and evidence-informed recommendations that can be used to enhance health programming among vulnerable populations in diverse contexts.

After the survey has been completed, a report is prepared with data results and tailored health recommendations in four domains: behavior and environmental modifications, education, and direct strategies. Evidence-informed resources are also provided for dissemination to youth and their parents.
