“The new Alcohol.Think Again ‘I need you to say no’ campaign is a collaborative initiative between the Mental Health Commission (MHC) and Alcohol Programs Team, Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA. The Campaign is informed by the National Health and Medical Research Council Guidelines that ‘for young people under 18-years-of-age, ‘not drinking alcohol is the safest option’ and sees an emphasis placed on supply control.
The Campaign aims to reinforce that most parents don’t provide alcohol to their children; and given teenagers vulnerabilities to the effects of alcohol and associations with adverse adult outcomes, it’s best for teenagers to delay alcohol use until at least 18 years-of-age.”
