Grey Bruce Position Paper 2012
Executive Summary Feb 15 2011
The Grey Bruce Health Communities Partnership report Reducing Alcohol Related Harm: Moving Toward a Culture of Moderation in Grey Bruce identifies seven recommendations for community-based actions to address the issue of alcohol misuse in Grey Bruce. The issue is not that Grey Bruce residents drink alcohol; but rather how much, how often and the context for drinking is the issue. That level of drinking has considerable social, health and economic impacts on our community and the public significantly underestimates the seriousness of these consequences.
Grey Bruce is a vibrant community with stunning natural beauty, clean air and sparkling water. As residents, we feel a strong sense of belonging to the community and rate our overall health as very good. Yet when compared to the province, the results of some health indicators such as heavy drinking and injuries suggest that there is room for improvement for Grey Bruce.
