Government campaign to target drinking

A new campaign called Name That Point is aiming to get young people talking about alcohol consumption

December 30, 2013 2:28pm
The Victorian Coalition Government has launched a new campaign to encourage responsible drinking.
 
The campaign is a joint effort betweent the state government and VicHealth and is called Name That Point.
 
It’s designed to get young people talking openly about alcohol consumption and the role it plays in their lives.
 
‘‘Name That Point does not tell people what to do or how to run their lives,’’ Minister for Mental Health Mary Wooldridge said.
 
‘‘It actually invites Victorians to talk about how they’d like our community’s relationship with alcohol to be. And we know that we’re ready for a change - a 2013 national poll found that 75 per cent of Australians believe we have a problem with excessive drinking.’’
 
‘‘We want people to recognise that they don’t have to drink to excess in order to have a good time. By encouraging individual responsibility and a sensible approach to drinking alcohol in our culture, people can make positive, healthier choices about their drinking habits.’’
 
Visit www.namethatpoint.com to get involved. 
 
A $5000 prize is also up for grabs.
