Vaping: The More You Know

DASH recently launched a new initiative called Vaping: The More You Know. This three-part initiative empowers youth to take more control over their well-being and behaviours related to vaping. This initiative was piloted in 4 schools across B.C. and is showing positive results. Student feedback indicates that this initiative is improving students’ understanding regarding the health impacts of vaping, youth vaping statistics in B.C., and strategies to reduce the harms of vaping. Furthermore, participating youth are gaining knowledge about where they can go to receive support for their mental health and for vaping reduction or cessation. If you’re interested in having your school involved in this initiative next year, fill out the Expression of Interest form or contact your regional Comprehensive School Health Facilitator to learn more.
