Lews Castle College Health & Wellbeing Inputs

The Outer Hebrides Alcohol & Drug Partnership Development Officer provided inputs at the Lews Castle College to the Hair & Beauty Students and Mixed Ability students on 30th May 2018.

The learning sessions included awareness of different strengths and types of alcohol; the current recommended units and the different categories of drugs, using a drug samples box.  The classes also looked at the long/short term mental and physical effects of alcohol and drugs on the body.  The Mixed Ability students particularly enjoyed using the beer goggles which mimics the effects of being under the influence.  Resources such as unit measure glasses, leaflets and mocktail recipes were available for the students to take away.
