International FASD Awareness Day is the 9th September. Do you have an event planned? If so, we would love to hear from you!

We also invite you to Join The Pledge!

Show your support by pledging to not consume alcohol on this day. As some examples, you might post a status on Facebook, post a picture of yourself with a non-alcoholic beverage on Twitter, or share your photos from your FASD Awareness Day event on Instagram – whatever you like!
You can make a statement like “I’m choosing to be alcohol-free on the 9th of the 9th because I know what FASD is.”

All we ask is that you include the hashtag #FASDAwarenessDay. And don't forget to share this post!We look forward to seeing your pledges on social media soon!

 

We have teamed up with Mental Health Carers NSW to run a 2hr Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) awareness workshop on the 8th November! Free for Families/Carers and Consumers and $40 for Clinicians

From The Prevention Conversation: Alcohol & Pregnancy Science - Alcohol is a neurotoxin & a teratogen. Lead is a neurotoxin but not a teratogen. No published study has suggested that alcohol is not a teratogen or demonstrated that prenatal alcohol use has any potential benefit to human development

Understanding the Impairments of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome VictimsDr. Brian Leany, Ph.D.- The court and its officers must act as advocates to ensure that offenders with FASD, receive appropriate intervention after sentencing.
