Alcohol and the Brain
This video summarizes research that shows how alcohol affects parts of the brain, both immediately and long term. It also discusses theories on how alcohol causes addiction and some of the complications for treatment.
Cope shares the voices of Saskatchewan young people and how they cope with challenges in their lives. The aim is that youth throughout the province will connect with other young peoples’ experiences, feel supported, and learn about healthy ways of coping with difficulties in their lives.
What’s Inside? Creative works which reveal the thoughts and opinions of young people and how they cope with challenges in their lives; the culture of alcohol consumption; a young man’s experience with addiction issues; the impact of addictions on family members; and sex, alcohol, and consent. In addition, the magazine explores youth finding outlets through music, getting involved, youth conference planning, and much more.
Cope was developed as part of the Youth Action for Prevention Program; a youth-focused FASD prevention program that raises awareness about alcohol-related harms and supports youth to create positive change in their communities. The articles and art in this magazine can be used to start conversations about the role of alcohol in the lives of young people and society, and ways to promote resilience.SKU: 3-008
