The Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission, Inc., in partnership with the Westmoreland County Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, are asking you to partner with us in raising awareness of FASD in Westmoreland County. We are distributing FASD materials across the county and ask that you share those materials. If you receive a T-shirt, please wear your shirt during September, especially on September 9, to raise awareness. Coasters will also be distributed to local bars and restaurants to utilize during September in an effort to remind patrons of the dangers of drinking while pregnant.
There are many ways you can help to spread awareness about FASD, such as adding an FASD graphic to your email signature, posting a graphic on your website, displaying posters about FASD at your business, disseminating the FASD rack cards or magnets, encouraging your staff to wear pink on September 9, and any ideas you have to raise awareness of FASD.
If you would like more information or materials, please call the Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission at 724.542.4508.
