The Interventions-Substance Use Rolling Cohort study is a qualitative study with semi-structured, in-depth qualitative interviews between 2020-2021.
The study sample included sexual and gender minority youth in BC between 15-30 years of age who use substances (n=21).
The study aimed to determine how sexual and gender minority youth have navigated substance use, mental health and sexual health through the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health directives.
Although still conducting the analysis, participants spoke about coping, resilience, mental health, sexual health and substance use over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many were also navigating shifting economic, social and educational fault-lines. Participants reported disparate experiences in navigating shifting public health guidelines.
