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.

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
