The life-course implications of declining adolescent drinking

September 2022
Project description: 

Generating new knowledge on the trajectories of youth drinking into young adulthood, this project aims to identify ways to ensure that recent declines in adolescent drinking are maintained and reinforced as these cohorts age.

Funded by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, expected outcomes include new cross-national understandings of the predictors of heavy drinking in adulthood and an updated evidence base for the development of harm prevention policies and interventions by governments and NGOs.

This would provide significant benefits to Australia via reductions in the negative health and social impacts of heavy drinking for these cohorts across their lives.
