Write for SpunOut.ie's Alcohol Awareness Campaign
SpunOut.ie is looking for anyone aged 16-25 who wants to help open up conversations about alcohol.
This November, SpunOut.ie is running our Alcohol Awareness Campaign and we’re looking for young people across Ireland to add your voice to the campaign!
Get involved in the campaign
- How does drinking affect your mental health?
- What do you do for fun that doesn’t involve drinking?
- How do you support a friend who isn’t drinking on a night out?
- What do you think of Ireland’s drinking culture?
We believe that young people across Ireland can help support each other by their sharing stories, lived experiences, advice and opinions. If you’re between 16 and 25 years old and living in Ireland, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in writing an article or making a video to raise awareness about the link between alcohol use and mental health, alternatives to Ireland’s drinking culture or supports for people who do not drink.
You do not need any writing experience. We’ll help you out every step of the way giving you feedback and suggestions for your piece. Your piece will be posted on SpunOut.ie and our social media so that thousands of young people across Ireland will feel more supported and encouraged to seek help.
What’s the campaign about?
With this campaign, we hope to increase young people’s understanding of the relationship between alcohol and mental health, particularly suicide and self-harm, and to support all young with the tools they need to better manage this relationship.
We’re also focusing on giving people alternatives to drinking alcohol and advice for people who choose not to drink. Throughout the campaign, we’ll be posting articles and videos with lots of information and personal stories from young people on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
