Enhancing health care in Pictou County


The FORBOW study is interested in helping young people do well.


Are you in northern or eastern Nova Scotia? Would you consider participating in a research study to help us learn what supports young people need to develop positive mental health? Study participants will help FORBOW develop programs that support young people stay strong and healthy into adulthood and reduce the risk of mental illness. We will also look at the mental health of their parents and how this relates to the experiences their young people have.

FORBOW is inviting children, youth and young adults, age 9 and up, to participate. For more information, please contact us by email alisha.griffin@nshealth.ca or phone Alisha Griffin at 902-752-7600 ext. 3714.
