“Changes and Challenges: A Decade of Observations of the Health and Well-Being of Young Adults in British Columbia” is a new report which was released by Island Health and UVic. The report spans a decade (2003-2013) of repeat interviews from the Victoria Healthy Youth Survey, with 662 young people from Greater Victoria as a random-sample cohort of youth from ages 12 to 18. “This snapshot in time of people now 25 to 31 years old is applicable to any youth right now,” says UVic psychologist, lead author, and former CFYS Director Bonnie Leadbeater.
