CCSA: Youth Alcohol Use and Its Harms, Case Study in the Community of Sherbrooke
Many Canadian communities struggle in addressing the issue of excessive alcohol consumption among youth in general and postsecondary students in particular. This case study examines the collaborative response to build community partnerships, understand in depth the harms caused by alcohol, and plan a local group response.
The key was partnership. The case study shows that the partnership, which included campus administrators and students (from CEGEPs and universities), healthcare professionals and representatives from public health, the police, the City and CCSA, is poised to make meaningful headway in addressing harms.
