Three themes emerged.
“I learn the most and digest the most information when there’s questions and discussions” -Vancouver participant
“People who are in and out of prison, on that revolving door, are being exposed to unhealthy food and that’s the kind of habits you pick up when you come out because, you don’t know any better, right?” -Vancouver participant
“Peer-based, peer-led is really important…when I was younger I wouldn’t listen to anybody seriously if it wasn’t somebody my age who had a similar experience” -Vancouver participant
“In a prison setting, they don’t always take their peers seriously, so it might help to have the professionals to back up what they are saying.”
