Resource package

 

Description

The resources in this package were developed to promote positive messages and images about strong culture, families and healthy choices in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. These fact sheets and scenes show some of the alternative activities and lifestyles that people can engage in, rather than be caught up in the binge drinking cycle. They highlight the support that is available to help people avoid an unhealthy drinking culture.

This collection of resources contains two fact sheets and four scenarios. All six resources are in a simple poster format. The resources are no longer available in hard copy but can be downloaded from the website.

When to use this resource

This collection of resources contains information that is relevant to the whole community. The two fact sheets are designed for parents and carers of young people while the scenarios are primarily aimed at young people. All six resources could be displayed at community events or workshops, at schools or youth centres, and be used to generate discussion on binge drinking and alternative activities.
