Minister for Health Promotion Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy has today launched a comprehensive online resource on alcohol. The new website www.askaboutalcohol.ie features evidence-based guidelines based on known risks associated with different patterns of alcohol consumption. It offers guidance on seeking help, both for those directly experiencing alcohol-related harm and affected families.
A similar resource in Northern Ireland is available at http://www.knowyourlimits.info/.
IPH welcomes the development of these resources and continues to support all-island cooperation on alcohol policy through the North South Alcohol Policy Advisory Group.
