P.A.R.T.Y. Program

Since 2013, Markham Stouffville Hospital works with the P.A.R.T.Y. program to help prevent alcohol and risk-related trauma in youth. The P.A.R.T.Y program provides a full day of learning for students, which includes information provided by MSH staff and physicians, survivor stories from guest speakers, and more.

The goal of the 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 and risk-related incidents. There are over 100 P.A.R.T.Y. Programs around the world, and the numbers keep growing.
