2021 Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS) results
Today, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) released their Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS) results. The OSDUHS is a population survey of Ontario students in grades 7 through 12. The survey provides reliable information about the health risk behaviours, attitudes and beliefs of Ontario adolescents, and it tracks changes over time. The report is live on the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) website as a summary infographic and as a full report. OPH has partnered with CAMH to get Ottawa specific data. The analysis provides valuable data that will help inform how to best support the mental health, addictions and substance use health needs of our community. You can find that report on our website: OttawaPublicHealth.ca/MentalHealth
