Transcript of National Binge Drinking Campaign: Don't Turn a Night Out into a Nightmare

National Binge
Drinking Campaign Introduction: Why we chose this strategy: The National Binge Drinking Campaign Conclusion One of the main influences of excessive alcohol consumption is the Australian cultural and social norms around drinking alcohol.

Peer pressure, stress, parties, roommates, schooling (high school and tertiary institutions) and large social networks all influence binge drinking.

Binge Drinking can affect quality of life. Health Promotion Principles, Values and Frameworks Partnerships Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion Don't Turn A Night Out Into A Nightmare The National Binge Drinking Strategy provides $53.5 million to address the problem of alcohol misuse among young Australians, including:
•$14.4 million to invest in community level initiatives to confront the culture of binge drinking, particularly in sporting organisations:

•$2 million is being invested in Club Champions – two members from each major sporting club competing in the national competitions across all six sports – to help foster leaders in responsible drinking at the elite level,

•$5.2 million will be invested in a significant expansion of the Good Sports initiative of the Australian Drug Foundation – to support local sporting clubs to build a culture of responsible drinking at the grassroots level,

•$7.2 million for a community based grants round, which will provide an avenue to establish sustainable partnerships between non government organisations, local government, sporting groups, police and interested parties to work together to develop local solutions to address youth binge drinking within their own community.

•$19.1 million to intervene earlier to assist young people and ensure that they assume personal responsibility for their binge drinking.

•$20 million to fund advertising that confronts young people with the costs and consequences of binge drinking.

90 per cent of Australian teenagers over the age of 14 years reported having tried alcohol at least once before they turn 18.

The need for a health promotion strategy to be put into place to address and reduce the impact of excessive alcohol consumption in young individuals which is why the National Binge drinking Campaign was introduced on March the 10th 2008. As young teens ourselves, we are consistently surrounded by alcohol controlled environments and have seen first-hand the impact and dangers alcohol can have on young individuals.

As health promotion students, there is an increase in demand to create awareness and address the issue broadly. The need for early intervention is a must, as binge drinking rates among young people are consistently increasing.

The national binge drinking is a strong initiative that is guided by health promotion frameworks, principles and values in order to address the common determinants associates with binge drinking. It works towards reducing alcohol-related harm in young people, and use a range of tools to ensure that binge drinking is avoided entirely Empowerment

Environments National Binge Drinking Campaign Schools As the target audience for this campaign is the 15-17 age group, the National Binge Drinking Campaign needs schools to be the source for the distribution of information. A school setting is the most accessible and effective way of getting the message of the dangers to a wide range of adolescents. Sporting Groups Sporting groups are a setting for adolescents to get together and had previously been an environment dominated by alcohol adverts and cheap beers. As children can be heavily involved in sporting groups, they are susceptible to the influence of the presence of alcohol around them, putting them at greater risk of drinking to excess when given the opportunity as teenagers. Alcohol is the most widely used recreational drug in Australia. Because of its popularity, people don't tend to think of it as a drug, or even realise that it can be harmful

The program is supported community partnerships with sporting and other non-government organizations to positively influence environments that can shape the culture of binge drinking among young people
