Communicable Research Podcast Graphic

In this podcast we’re talking about the topic of alcohol consumption and its decline among young people.

A ScHARR led report funded by the Wellcome Trust from 2018 that was co-authored by Professor Holmes found that young people in England are drinking less. They looked at evidence from multiple surveys that showed a consistent pattern over 10-15 years of reduced participation in drinking, reduced consumption levels among drinkers, reduced prevalence of drunkenness and less positive attitudes towards alcohol.
