Alcohol and Wellbeing

Alcohol is Australia’s most widely-used recreational drug. So it’s no surprise that many university students also choose to drink alcohol as part of celebrating, socialising, relaxing and having fun. 

Just as there are some positive aspects to why people choose to drink alcohol, there is also the flip side when it comes to the effects of alcohol on health and wellbeing.

UniSA’s student-led alcohol awareness campaign supported by Bupa, UniSA’s Overseas Student Health Care preferred provider, aims to educate and empower students to make informed choices about drinking alcohol.

Learn more about alcohol-related harm, tips on how to drink responsibly, where to get help and much more.
