Public Health Observance: Alcohol Awareness Month

April 1

|Recurring Event (See all)

Drinking too much alcohol increases people’s risk of health-related injuries, violence, drowning, liver disease, and some types of cancer.

We can all do our part to prevent alcohol misuse or abuse.

Make a difference: Spread the word about strategies for preventing alcohol misuse or abuse and encourage communities, families, and individuals to get involved.

How can Alcohol Awareness Month make a difference?

We can use this month to raise awareness about alcohol abuse and take action to prevent it, both at home and in the community.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Encourage friends or family members to make small changes, like keeping track of their drinking and setting drinking limits.
  • Share tips with parents to help them talk with their kids about the risks of alcohol use.
  • Ask doctors and nurses to talk to their patients about the benefits of drinking less or quitting.
