FASD International Awareness Month 2023

All over the world, September is known as FASD Awareness Month. And September 9, (09/09) is International FASD Awareness Day. 

FASD-CAN is holding our Hui this year on September 9 in Kirikiriroa / Hamilton with a host of national and international speakers. The Hui is now fully booked, but we will be bringing you some gems from it over the course of FASD Month.

We have teamed up with our friends at Alcohol Healthwatch in creating a website just for FASD Awareness Month. You'll find it here: FASDmonth.nz but there are some resources below to get you started.
