By youth, for youth resources

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.


BC Adolescent Health Survey


About the BC Adolescent Health Survey

The BC Adolescent Health Survey (BC AHS) is a questionnaire used to gather information about young people’s physical and emotional health, and about factors that can influence health during adolescence or in later life. The survey is conducted by the McCreary Centre Society in collaboration with the provincial government and public health system, and with the cooperation of BC’s school districts.
