Violence is one of the most common causes of death among Canadian youth. A study of charts at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg found that 20 per cent of youth injured by violence will return to the hospital within the next year with another violent injury. Appalled by this statistic and motivated to help youth break these cycles of violence, assistant professor Dr. Carolyn Snider leads the Emergency Department Violence Intervention Program.

In a randomized controlled study that uses the holistic Circle of Courage framework, youth who visit the emergency room with a violence-related injury are offered a support worker.

She discovered that guaranteeing people an income can improve health, which could mean health-care savings.
