College & Drinking: Province Spending $400,000 to Encourage Dialogue

Posted on March 1st, 2016

CBC has released an article sharing the exciting news that the Ministry of Health is continuing to support our Changing the Culture of Substance Use project (a project within Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses).  CMHA BC and CARBC are very thankful for the support of the provincial government.

“In a press release, the Ministry of Health noted that 39 per cent of post-secondary students who drank alcohol last year said they regretted something they did when drinking.

Reist says the funding from the provincial government will be used on a variety of special dialogue projects, including Selkirk College’s Dinner Baskets Conversations. The program gives students a basket of food to cook and eat together, while they discuss their feelings on drug and alcohol use.”
