Webinar: Youth Wellbeing in Ontario

Highlights from the Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS) and Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YWHO)

Youth wellbeing is a priority within Ontario. Though youth report challenges with substance use and psychological wellbeing, many report not knowing where to go to access the mental health and health care they need. Integrated models of care that are designed to improve access to care for youth with health, mental health or substance use concerns can help address those issues.

Date/Time: Wednesday January 23, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. - 12:00p.m. 

You will learn:

  • Highlight key findings from the 2017 OSDUHS about Ontario students’ substance use and wellbeing.
  • Explore how Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario can address some of the challenges identified by the OSDUHS.
  • Hear from a panel of the OSDUHS researchers and the Executive Director of YWHO.
