Drinking too much alcohol increases people’s risk of injuries, violence, drowning, liver disease, and some types of cancer. The good news? We can all take steps to help prevent alcohol misuse and abuse. Alcohol Awareness Month is the perfect time to get started!
With this and other National Health Observance toolkits offered on healthfinder.gov, we’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care practices, and health departments to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like the health risks of drinking too much alcohol.
This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Add information about alcohol abuse to your newsletter.
- Tweet about Alcohol Awareness Month.
- Host a community event where families can learn about local addiction resources.
- Add this Web badge to your website.
- Join us in raising awareness for Alcohol Awareness Month.
By raising awareness about alcohol misuse and abuse, communities, organizations, and health professionals can take steps to help prevent it.
