Drink ReThink. What's it all about?
Between Tuesday 4th - Friday 7th December Manchester Met students took part in the NUS 'Drink Rethink' event occurring across campus.
‘Drink Rethink’ is a preventative approach that trains student ambassadors to use a behaviour change tool (Identification and Brief Advice, IBA) to deliver alcohol intervention surveys on campus.
Student staff from The Union and Residential Advisors worked in partnership as ambassadors to conduct student surveys on alcohol intake. Students received a guidance leaflet based on their survey results, which provided further support and information from MMU Counselling, Health and Wellbeing. After the success of the Alcohub event in November, Residential Advisors have further helped to promote alcohol awareness across campus by interacting with students during the survey.
The surveys reviewed how students’ alcohol consumption has changed and the physical and mental health impacts resulting from alcohol consumption.
If you are living in halls of residence and have any concerns and would like to speak to somebody, you can contact your Residential Advisor in the daily drop in between 6pm-7pm in Reception.
Alternatively you can contact the Counselling, Health and Wellbeing service on 0161 247 3493. For more information click here.
