Alcohol Awareness week
Alcohol and mental health
Alcohol Change UK are focussing on the issues around alcohol and mental health and the best ways to look after ourselves and those we love during a year of great change and uncertainty.
Alcohol doesn’t only impact on individuals who drink. During Alcohol Awareness Week we are encouraging people thinking about how drinking affects our family and friends, our working lives, those living within our communities, and our society more generally.
Around 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year and drinking too much or too often can increase our risk. But many of us are unaware of the link between alcohol and poor mental health and it’s often the first thing we turn to when we’re feeling low, stressed, worried or unable to cope.
If you are worried and would like to talk to someone about your drinking, give us a call on 01903 221450 where we can make a telephone appointment for you to chat to our friendly, trained Wellbeing Advisors.
