About Us

Youth researchers investigated the key issues, and this information is now available.

With practical information and tools geared at youth, families, educators and community partners, the site is a hub of innovative, experiential and scientific information to help people better understand the issue and make informed decisions about cannabis use.

The Cannabis and Psychosis project is a national project of the Schizophrenia Society of Canada funded by the Drug Strategy Initiatives Fund of Health Canada.
  The aim of the project is to increase awareness and understanding of the relationship between cannabis use and psychosis from the perspective of youth.

Over the next 3 years we will work in partnership with Early Intervention In Psychosis clinics from different areas of the country to find out more about the issue from the perspective of youth who've been there.
