    Not only can alcohol weaken our immune system, it can also worsen our mental health and increase our risk of developing alcohol-caused disease. Reduce your drinking to reduce your risk. 


    An extension of the ‘Glassbody’ campaign is launching in late April 2020 in an effort to reduce the risk of alcohol-related harm associated with people staying and working at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. The campaign is a joint initiative between the Mental Health Commission and Cancer Council Western Australia.

    With the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, it is a stressful time for many people with many aspects of our daily lives changing rapidly. Some of us may turn to alcohol for short-term stress relief or because of boredom, but rather than helping us cope, alcohol can make us feel more stressed and anxious. Alcohol can also weaken our immune system, making it more difficult to fight off viruses and infection, and increase our risk of developing alcohol-caused disease, like cancer and stroke.

    To stay healthy and well, it’s important that if you’re going to drink, to do so at low‑risk levels. This campaign provides practical tips for Western Australians to reduce risky alcohol consumption in the home
