report cover

The voices, thoughts and experiences of teenagers have been largely missing in adult conversations and media reports about vaping.

As a result, many young people are feeling misunderstood, judged, shamed, blamed, and punished for vaping. They say they lack information, education and support from the adults and institutions around them.

It is hoped that decision makers in schools and across the community will be better informed as a result of this survey report and that they will consider young people’s insights and experiences when determining what responses to make to address issues related to vaping occurring in schools and the broader community
