In This Together: You, Alcohol and COVID-19

In This Together: You, Alcohol and COVID-19

By FARE and NOFASD Australia
A Podcast Miniseries that is meant to examine life under the pandemic. COVID-19 has changed our whole lives. This includes the way that people are using alcohol. People are socially isolated, anxious and many are experiencing financial difficulties. All of these experiences can lead to risky alcohol use and a range of harms. This series will look at these issues a little more closely, and make people aware of alcohol use during these times. Because at the end of the day, we are all in this together. A podcast series created by NOFASD Australia and FARE.
