Alcohol Awareness Week

Alcohol Awareness Week

It's Alcohol Awareness Week, running from 16-22 November 2020 on the theme of Alcohol and mental health. It's a week of awareness-raising, campaigning for change, and more. There's still time to take part.

It's been a challenging year and it's no wonder that many of us are feeling a little more stressed and anxious than usual. This can cause our drinking to creep up. So this Alcohol Awareness Week we're talking about the issues and sharing information and advice on the best ways to look after ourselves and those we love during this difficult time.
