FASD International Day is on September 9th every year.
WHAT IS FASD?
It’s when people who were exposed to alcohol in the womb are affected with a lifelong disability that affects the brain and body.
Each person with FASD may need special supports to help them succeed.
Please join us on this day to raise awareness on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
Women and men are unaware of the excessive alcohol use before, during and after pregnancy.
Mental health, substance abuse problems, social and behavioural issues may increase with children and youth affected by FASD.
We are focusing on the prevention, education and help with support.
Lets help improve supports and bring upon a more positive future for people affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder FASD.
We would like to highlight the importance of an Alcohol-Free Pregnancy and help improve women’s healthcare.
