The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation today officially announced its partnership with the "NSW/ACT Alcohol Policy Alliance" (NAAPA).
The alliance now has 47 members calling on the State Government of NSW and the Federal Government to engage with the community to make life-saving policy to address current alcohol harms.
The warning message in this quote made 38 years ago has largely gone unheeded:
“Alcohol is the major drug of abuse in Australia. It now constitutes a problem of epidemic proportions [and] …any failure by governments or individuals to acknowledge that a major problem - and potential national disaster - is upon us would constitute gross irresponsibility.”
