This new group session developed by Occupational Health and Wellbeing Services is designed to give you the facts about alcohol. Alcohol is a part of many of our lives. We use it for celebration, for comfort, to socialise, to wind down, to cope. We treat it differently to other drugs; it’s legal, socially acceptable, even encouraged.

Yet in the UK one person every hour dies as a result of alcohol. Alcohol harm – mental health problems, liver disease, one of seven forms of cancer, economic difficulties, and so much more – can affect any one of us, from any walk of life.

Join one of the sessions to learn about safe drinking levels, and explore ideas which may help you to cut back. You can see all the session aims, dates, more information and resorces, below.

 

 

The session aims are:

  • To explore the effects of alcohol on physical and mental wellbeing​

  • To understand unit measurements​

  • To look at our own drinking habits and identify risk​

  • To identify risks to health​

  • To explore options and ideas on how to cut back

The expected duration of the session is approximately 60 minutes and run over Teams.
