Alcohol warning for Leavers Week

Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell reminded parents and students ahead of Leavers Week (November 21 to 24, 2016) that no-one should provide alcohol to under 18s.
This is the second year that the Liberal National Government’s (Australia) secondary supply laws will be in force, meaning 18-year-olds that provide alcohol to their friends could be breaking the law.
Ms Mitchell said the recently launched new phase of the Parents, Young People and Alcohol advertising campaign, which would run until the end of November 2016, reminded all leavers of the dangers of underage and excessive drinking.

To support the campaign, a new Alcohol and Leaver’s Celebration Community Action Kit has been developed by the Mental Health Commission.
