This ‘no frills’ update allows you to take a moment to view and reflect on FASD perspectives shared over FASD Awareness Month. The journey begins with the perspective of confirming evidence about prenatal alcohol exposure, moves to valuable insights of the lived experience, challenging preventive rights & responsibilities and looking to the future, the potential for change perspective!

Activation of potential perspective

Alcohol Healthwatch has launched a new digital campaign, Uncap Our Potential, which invites New Zealanders to truly imagine our nation with less alcohol harm. The campaign kicks off with two digital stories on social media, with New Zealanders working at the forefront of alcohol harm sharing their vision of a future with less harm. Everything we care about will start to improve. We can identify evidence-based pathways to this vision, such as supporting effective alcohol pricing policies. With less alcohol harm, we can help New Zealand to be the best place in the world for children and young people. We sincerely hope that you also share the vision to uncap our potential - https://www.uncapourpotential.org.nz/. In the words of one New Zealander in our videos, "together we can make it a reality".
