Drug Education Centred on Youth Decision Empowerment

Our vision: To empower youth to make safe and informed choices regarding their substance use health. 

Our mission: To provide evidence-based, harm reduction, and trauma-informed substance use information and resources for educators, youth, and parents/guardians. 

DECYDE is an education strategy created by CHERP (Cannabis Health Evaluation and Research Partnership team) at Memorial University. 

CHERP is an interdisciplinary team of researchers who aim to understand the impacts of cannabis legalization in Newfoundland and Labrador, and how we can support individuals in making safe and informed choices.
