The parents, young people and alcohol campaign is a collaborative initiative between the Mental Health Commission (MHC) and Alcohol Programs Team, Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA.
The campaign has four objectives including:
- Reduce inflated perceptions of the prevalence of underage drinking.
- Increase the age at which adults believe it is acceptable for adolescents to initiate alcohol use.
- Increase the belief of adolescents vulnerabilities to the effects of alcohol.
- Creating support amongst the community for policy measures to reduce alcohol-related harm in adolescents.
