Over 50? Drink Wise

January 25, 2018

A new online film looks at life transitions that can trigger harmful drinking – to tackle stigma around older drinkers 

 

 

 

 

The number of people in the UK aged 50 plus experiencing alcohol related harm is increasing.

 

The reasons for this are complex, but one of the main barriers to older adults getting help is the stigma around alcohol use – particularly with this age group.

 

A short film being launched today at a conference about substance misuse in the over 50's looks at some of the key reasons older people drink, in a bid to generate better understanding of the tough later life realities that could lead any one of us to drink more than we should.       

 

The film launched by Drink Wise, Age Well – a programme aimed at helping the over 50s make healthier choices about alcohol – is centred on four characters going through key life transitions that have triggered harmful drinking.
