P.A.R.T.Y. Program

Since 2013, Markham Stouffville Hospital has supported the Markham P.A.R.T.Y. program to help prevent alcohol and risk-related trauma in youth in their community. The P.A.R.T.Y program provides a full day of in-hosptial learning for students, which includes information provided by MSH staff and physicians, the Ontario Provincial Police, York Region Paramedic Services, Markham Fire and Emergency Services, and survivor stories from guest speakers.

The goal of the Markham P.A.R.T.Y. Program is to provide youth with information about injury (trauma) that will enable them to recognize potential injury producing situations, to make prevention-oriented choices and adopt behaviours that minimize unnecessary risk. This program is a vital component of the growing community effort to reduce death and injury in alcohol, drug and risk-related incidents. There are over 100 P.A.R.T.Y. Programs around the world, and the numbers keep growing.
