We also know that increasing alcohol intake is a common response to the additional pressures we are all dealing with. The challenges and stresses brought by COVID-19 have reinforced the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, even in the face of extraordinary circumstances and disruptions to our normal behaviours.

Following on from our popular Literary Mocktails initiative, the Drug Info team have got back behind the bar, crafting a new collection of literary-themed mocktails inspired by these unprecedented times. The Make it a mocktail campaign is a fun and friendly reminder for people to moderate their drinking in times of stress and offers them an easy, non-alcoholic alternative when they feel like they need a ‘drink’. 

Campaign resources include:


We have also prepared social media posts for you to use to promote these resources. We also encourage you to create your own posts that reflect the needs and interests of your community. 

Remember that Drug Info includes a Getting Help section with a comprehensive list of support services. The NSW Health website provides up-to-date advice and information on COVID-19, while support is available to anyone struggling with COVID-19-related stress or anxiety on the Your Room website.
