Review: The Centre actively engages in targeted and longitudinal research related to adolescent health, mental health and the use or misuse of alcohol, tobacco, cannabis and other drugs by young people. Internationally significant work has been done related to the better understanding of protective and risk factors, prevention, assessment and early intervention and, where needed, appropriate medical intervention that acknowledges the special needs of young patients.  Access to overviews of current research projects and abstracts of published research. An excellent site for professionals and intending tertiary students with an interest in youth health.
