McCreary is committed to returning the results of the survey to young people. We are currently preparing an interactive curriculum which teachers, youth workers and others who work with youth can use to engage young people in a dialogue about risk and protective factors for healthy development.
A poster created by McCreary’s Youth Advisory and Action Council is available to download here.

McCreary released the results of their third survey of youth in custody in August 2013. The report was updated in February 2014 to include comparisons to the 2013 BC Adolescent Health Survey. The report looks at the health and experiences of 114 young people aged 12-19 who were in custody between August 2012 and January 2013.
