Impact of alcohol
Find out how alcohol can impact the developing brain.
The ‘We all need to say no’ campaign aims to raise awareness that no one should give alcohol to under 18s and calls for parents to join the 2 out of 3 already saying ‘no’.
Research with WA parents shows they commonly overestimate how many other parents give alcohol to under 18s, and this perception influences their own decision making. WA parents have said they want to feel supported and empowered in their decision to say ‘no’.
This campaign was developed in consultation with parents and carers and young people in WA, and guided by experts in public health, medicine, research, and social marketing.
The campaign is a joint initiative of the Mental Health Commission and Cancer Council WA, and part of the state-wide strategy to reduce harms from alcohol among young people in Western Australia.
'We all need to say no’ launched on 3 July 2022, along with a dedicated website.
