Co-venture recherche prevention adolescents


A cluster randomized trial investigating the effects of delaying the onset of substance use on adolescent cognitive development

Coventure is a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funded research project, conducted by a team from the Research Center of CHU Sainte-Justine in collaboration with the Université de Montréal.



After taking part in a pilot project to tackle alcohol misuse using targeted interventions with students grouped by personality traits and individual tendencies, Corelli College saw a real impact. Jon Kelly explains how.

It helped me understand that everyone gets anxious and made me think about situations that are difficult for me.
