In order to ensure the ongoing safety of our patients and staff, please note that CAMH is maintaining the requirement for universal masking of staff, patients, visitors/essential care partners, contractors/vendors at CAMH. A hospital-approved mask will be required to enter into our buildings and in all common areas. Further, current screening stations and protocols are also being maintained and there will be no change in the requirement for anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or exposure risks to not enter the hospital.
Cannabis is one of the most frequently used substances among young people. In fact, cannabis use is higher in this population than any other age group. This is why a youth version of Canada’s Lower-Risk Cannabis Use Guidelines (LRCUG) was developed for youth, by youth, in collaboration with CAMH’s Youth Engagement Initiative and National Youth Action Council (NYAC), and the Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse (CRISM). This youth education resource provides information on safer ways to use cannabis using evidence-based recommendations. It may be also be a useful tool to start a conversation about cannabis use with young people across Canada.
