Young adult shares his experience with Life Education’s program

National youth week is a celebration of Australia’s youth that takes place annually from the 8th – 17th April. It provides a platform through which individuals can share their opinion on a variety of topics that affect them, and come up with new ideas and express their own views on these issues. The health of young people is an important topic covered by the National Youth Week, and Life Education is committed to joining the discussion surrounding the various health issues affecting our country’s youth.

I still remember clearly the Life Education program from my years at primary school, where the Educator and Healthy Harold would come to visit and talk about a lot of different health issues. The one topic that stuck with me most was the safe use of alcohol, particularly surrounding underage drinking. The most commonly used recreational drug in Australia, people drink for a lot of different reasons; social occasions, celebrations, even just to relax. There is nothing wrong with the consumption of alcohol in moderation, but there are a number of different ways in which drinking can have adverse affects. It is crucial to recognise the negative consequences of unsafe alcohol consumption, and the ways in which to drink safely and responsibly.
