Drink Wise, Age Well NI Free Training Event

Do you work with or support someone over 50? Ever wanted to speak to them about their drinking but felt unsure what to do?
Many people think that alcohol problems are just an issue for younger people. However, Drink Wise, Age Well NI now know that this is becoming a significant issue for people as they get older.

Stigma and shame mean that as many as 1 in 4 people over the age of 50 would not ask for help if they had a problem.

This is why Drink Wise, Age Well NI’s training offers to help you recognise when someone over 50 might be at risk of harm from alcohol – and how best you can respond.

Training is Thursday 16 March from 10am – 2pm at Omagh Enterprise.

Training manuals and lunch is provided.
