Strengthening communities

Alcohol Harm Prevention Project

The Alcohol Harm Prevention Project, delivered in partnership with Lives Lived Well, aims to better understand community perspectives and solutions to reduce the harms, stigma and discrimination associated with alcohol by building the capacity of Vietnamese, Sudanese and Samoan communities in the Brisbane City Council area.

Working groups of community members and leaders are assisting ECCQ with delivering activities and identifying and prioritising issues and challenges.

ECCQ published a booklet, Community solutions to address impact of alcohol, available for download here. The booklet is a compilation of solutions that came out of community workshops held in March 2017. The workshops addressed culturally appropriate approaches and allowed organisations, community leaders and members to work alongside each other to identify challenges, issues and solutions.

For more information about this project, please contact Ms. Hong Do, email: or ring 07 3255 1540.

This project is funded by Stronger Community Mental Health and Well-Being Grants Program 2016-2017, Queensland Mental Health Commission and in collaboration with Brisbane City Council, Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agency and Brisbane South Primary Health Network.
