The Alcohol, Think Again ‘One Drink’ campaign is a joint initiative between the Mental Health Commission (MHC) and Cancer Council Western Australia, and forms one part of a broader Preventing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Project led by the MHC.

Bega’s Connected Beginnings Health Promotion Officer has been working tirelessly alongside this campaign bringing awareness of reducing alcohol harms and healthy pregnancies within our community. Her recent collaboration was to help develop a radio script that was informed by community members for our community. Make sure to keep an ear out on your local radio station!
