Young People and Drinking

This section brings together some of the best sources of research into the relationship between young people and alcohol.

This research is included because it's really important to give parents and other adults the facts about teenage drinking - and the fact is, not all young people drink. And not all young people that do drink, drink to excess.

That's useful to know when thinking about the drinking patterns of your own children - and it gives you some good information to use in conversation with your children about alcohol.
