Alcohol plays a role in many of our lives, even if we don’t realise it. But by making even small changes to our drinking behaviour we can become healthier and happier and reduce our risk for many serious health conditions including cancer, mental health problems, and liver disease.
This year’s Alcohol Awareness Week (11th-17th November 2019) highlighted the impact that alcohol can have on our bodies, our lives and those we love. Alcohol Change UK will be sharing digital resources (posters, factsheets, social media images) to encourage people to act to reduce their risk or seek help if they need it.
This November, let’s come together to share the tools and resources to help drive a conversation around alcohol and help people to get the support they deserve.
Awareness of alcohol is especially necessary as the festive season is approaching, and a lot more people will be enjoying a nice tipple or two to celebrate the festivities. Just remember to ensure you are staying on top of your alcohol intake and drinking responsibly.
We have created a helpsheet to help employees and employers notice the signs of an unhealthy relationship with alcohol and who may be at risk if the relationship continues. You can view the helpsheet here.
