From time to time Generation Next partners with other organisations to undertake collaborative research projects related to issues affecting the mental health of young people that might contribute to the development of mental illness or have a negative impact on their wellbeing.
National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC)
Generation Next collaborated with the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC) to better understand how best to modify education programs to more effectively reduce cannabis consumption by young people, in particular adolescents. The survey developed also explored school staff perceptions and experiences in addressing student cannabis use, which has formed the basis of further research and the development of improved resources and scholarly publications, including on the perceived role legitimacy and role importance of school staff in addressing student cannabis use.
