Purpose: The recipient will develop and implement a program to support aboriginal youth involved in the justice system who have a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) diagnosis (or are strongly suspected of having FASD); illicit substance abuse issues; and other negative influences in their lives. Two support workers will assist these youth in understanding what living with an FASD diagnosis, co-existing substance abuse and other life harms means, in relation to the youth's conflict with the law. The workers will be supported by partnerships with the Asante Centre, regional stakeholders and aboriginal community and family members of clients. The goal of the project is to help youth identify both their assets and areas where they need additional support, so they can develop individual strategies to successfully navigate through the assessment process and the justice system.
