The Youth Needs Census Queensland Launch
Sep 27, 2019
The Youth Needs Census- Queensland (ThYNC-Q) provides the first comprehensive study of young people in treatment across most of Queensland’s youth alcohol and other drug services. In this video, Dr Karen Hallam the lead researcher for ThYNC-Q, announces the launch of the Queensland census and provides some highlights of the key findings from the report.
The census was conducted in May 2017 and participating youth alcohol and other drug workers provided a snapshot of the young people utilising their services, including the substance use patterns, characteristics and needs of these young people. Data was collected for 508 young people in treatment, aged from 12 to 25 years.
ThYNC-Q could have not been achieved without the support of workers across Queensland youth alcohol and other drug services. On behalf of Dovetail and the research team at YSAS we would like to thank each worker who participated in ThYNC-Q. Without the engagement of the sector and its workers the census would not have been possible.
