ASCERT has launched an online awareness campaign to coincide with Northern Ireland Alcohol Awareness Week, which runs from the 17th - 23rd June 2019, aimed at promoting awareness of the impact of alcohol use in young people.

 #ThinkB4UDrink campaign will focus on promoting messaging relating specifically to young people (aged 11-25), and alcohol use in terms of risk of use, impact of others’ use, steps to take to minimise adverse impacts and supports ASCERT can offer to young people ‘at risk of’ harm' or affected by alcohol use.

Campaign Objectives:

  • To promote awareness of and access to ASCERT services
  • To raise awareness on how alcohol can impact on the lives of young people.
  • To provide, tips, advice and ‘wisdom’ to young people and those in their lives of proactive steps they can take to protect their wellbeing.

Each day throughout Nothern Ireland Alcohol Awareness Week, ASCERT will be publishing statistics, links to useful information and details of its services for young people. You are asked to support this campaign by sharing those social media posts to your own profile so that the message can reach as many young people, and those that support them as possible. 

You are also free to download any of the campaign graphics below and post them on your own social media account too. If you do, please remember to use the hashtags #ThinkB4UDrink and #NIAAW so that the post links back easily into all the information provided by the campaign.
