Substance Use and Nutrition

The 2021 Washington State Legislature directed WSIPP to review the literature and describe any relationship between early substance abuse and mental health disorders in young adults. The final report will also include any evidence on the relationship between nutrition and mental health disorders in young adults.

The legislature asked for a report on the research review and cost-benefit analyses by June 30, 2022. In June 2021, the WSIPP Board of Directors voted to extend this study deadline to December 1, 2022.
