Teachers also took part to be trained and receive a kit! As part of the YIA grant project, the youth participated in an anonymous survey asking them about their knowledge around using substances safely and their ideas or requests about how they would like to see substance use education shared with them. The YAT team shared that they really enjoyed hosting this event and training their fellow students in using Naloxone.
