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, trauma-informed, substance use education and resources with a focus on prevention and harm reduction for youth, educators, and 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.
