Alcohol Harm Prevention Project
The Alcohol Harm Prevention Project was funded by the Queensland Mental Health Commission and worked in partnership with Brisbane City Council, Brisbane South Primary Health Networks, The Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies and Metro South Health.
The project aimed to educate and support communities on the harms and effects of alcohol and where to find appropriate support. Target communities included Samoan, Sudanese and Vietnamese. The program events were all led, developed and executed by the community.
An Alcohol in your Community flyer has also been developed and is available for download in English, Vietnamese and Samoan.
