Alcohol and Sexual Assault
Youth Action for Prevention partnered with the Sexual and Reproductive Health Program and the University of Saskatchewan student groups (USSU Women’s Centre, What’s Your Cap?, USSU Students’ Union) to develop an infographic for Sexual Assault Awareness Week on campus. This infographic can be shared to raise awareness regarding the connection between alcohol and sexual assault, and the importance of getting consent to all sexual acts.
These 8.5 x 11 inch posters, developed by Childbirth Graphics, assist healthcare professionals in discussing alcohol use with their patients. Although these posters do not focus on FASD, they can be used to help patients understand that alcohol is one of many factors which can impact the development of the fetus.Audience: Healthcare Professionals and their PatientsSKU: 3-143
