GET INVOLVED IN THE NI ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK 2018

THIS ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK (18-24 JUNE 2018) WE ARE HIGHLIGHTING THE IMPACT ALCOHOL CAN HAVE ON PEOPLE WHO DRINK TOO MUCH AND THOSE AROUND THEM.
WE FOCUS ON THE DANGERS OF MIXING ALCOHOL WITH DRUGS, GIVING YOURSELF AN ALCOHOL MOT AND SUPPORT SERVICES AVAILABLE FOR THOSE WHO NEED HELP FOR THEIR DRINKING OR SOMEONE THEY KNOW.
ONCE AGAIN, WE ALSO INCLUDE UNITS IN OUR CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR AND WE HAVE DEVELOPED A RANGE OF INFORMATION AND RESOURCES – INCLUDING A MOBILE APP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ALCOHOL AND YOU CALLED ‘KNOW YOUR UNITS’ TO HELP YOU BOTH UNDERSTAND THEM BETTER AND TO ASSIST YOU IN COUNTING THEM UP MORE EASILY.
