Youth Health Advisory Council

The Youth Health Advisory Council (YHAC) works in partnership with the BC Centre on Substance Use Youth Health research team.

The YHAC is comprised of a group of 8 young people with lived and living experience of substance use. It includes Indigenous and LGBTQ2S+ youth. Formed in 2018, the YHAC meets weekly and collaborates on all aspects of Youth Health research.


Mission Statement

Our goal is to inform drug policy and practice through research guided by the perspectives of young people with lived or living experience of substance use at every stage. Our work is informed by fundamental social and health justice principles.
