Alcohol Awareness Week

The SIAS campaign in Solihull, is being run in partnership with Alcohol Concern and Adfam.

 

The campaign will run from Monday 13th November to Saturday 18th November 2017.

 

The aim of Alcohol Awareness Week is to get our local community thinking about alcohol – how it affects us as individuals, families, communities and society as a whole.

Did you know for example, that alcohol is linked to over 60 medical conditions? Harms from alcohol go much further than the liver, it can cause high blood pressure and is also linked to diabetes, depression and cancer. Information on the safe use of alcohol is freely available from our services and online.

The campaign is being supported by Meriden MP, Dame Caroline Spelman, who launched the Solihull Integrated Addiction Services charity partnership in 2013.

Speaking about the campaign the MP said, “Whether on a night out, enjoying a meal or relaxing at home, it is important that alcohol is consumed responsibly.

“For that reason, I am proud to lend my support to SIAS’s Alcohol Awareness Week campaign in order to highlight the risks associated with drinking too much alcohol and to raise awareness of the excellent support services they offer locally to help people beat alcohol and substance addiction”.

If you live in Solihull and you are worried about your own, or someone else’s alcohol use, there are a wide range of free and confidential services on offer.

The SIAS team will be out in the Borough meeting members of the community throughout the week of 13th to 18th November 2017. If you would like to get advice or information, then please come along and see us at one of the following. We will also be sharing information via our Website FB and Twitter pages. www.sias-solihull.org.uk
