New SHAAP report: Alcohol and the Developing Adolescent Brain: Evidence Review

SHAAP has just published Alcohol and the Developing Adolescent Brain: Evidence Review. Key recommendations are:

1 Protecting young people from alcohol-related harm has to be within the context of a 'whole population' approach to reduce overall alcohol consumption.

2 Protecting young people from alcohol-related harm should be embedded in national and local policy.

3 Emerging evidence that the adolescent brain may be especially vulnerable to alcohol harms should inform all health-promoting activities.

4 Emerging evidence that the adolescent brain may be especially vulnerable to alcohol harms should prompt investment in further exploratory research.
