Melville City Council in Western Australia have developed an educational DVD showing ways to prevent and minimise alcohol related harm. The DVD features a group of friends who organise a spontaneous "gathering" while parents are away. Things quickly get out of hand, and the decisions they make have consequences far into the future. The DVD is designed for use with groups of young people aged 15 to 18, and is based on the Western Australia high school curriculum. A great option if you are looking for a well-produced resource to start some discussion with young people about the potential impacts of alcohol. It comes with a manual of resources and activities.
