Youth substance use is a priority within Ontario and a focus of Phase 2 of Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. Although rates of substance use have declined among youth, key issues such as alcohol and tobacco use continue to be a concern. Many sectors, including health, justice, and education, have a role to play in addressing these issues.
In part two of this two-part series presented by Evidence Exchange Network (EENet) in the Provincial System Support Program at CAMH, presenters will reflect on how the OSDUHS data has been used to inform programming, planning, and policy at the system level. The OSDUHS is run by CAMH’s Institute for Mental Health Policy Research.
