Preventing Harmful Drug Use In Australia

Young Australians' Alcohol Reporting System

Hi there!

You are invited to take part in a study looking at alcohol use amongst young people.

This is a national research project run by Curtin University in collaboration with universities and health departments in every state and territory of Australia.

The information we collect will be used to make things safer for young people.

If you are aged 14-19 and regularly drink alcohol, you can get involved through either an in-person interview OR through an online survey

Talk to us in person

You can meet up with one of our friendly university researchers at a coffee shop, health building, or another public place that suits you.

The interview will take 45-60 minutes and you will be asked about your experience and what you think about alcohol use.

You will be reimbursed $40 cash for your time and expertise.

Interviews are confidential and anonymous. This means we will not ask you for your name or address. You may use a false name to book an interview time.

If you can't make it to a face-to-face interview, you can complete the survey online.

This survey is open to all 14-19 year olds living in Australia who are regular drinkers of alcohol.

The online survey should take about 20 minutes and is also anonymous (we will not know who you are).

We have 400 $40 JB Hi-Fi vouchers to give away to people who have completed the online survey (T & C). If you choose to enter the prize draw, your email address will be stored separately from your survey responses.
