Description:
I welcome the publication of The Health of Irish Students report which provides very useful information about young people in the college environment. The Report consists of two parts, the College lifestyle and Attitudinal National Survey (CLAN) and a Qualitative Evaluation of the College Alcohol Policy Initiative. Together, they provide a very concrete and practical basis for Colleges to move forward in the future in improving the welfare of their students. In 2001, the Health Promotion Unit of the Department of Health and Children, as part of its remit under the National Alcohol Policy to reduce alcohol related harm, assisted the National Working Group on Alcohol in Higher Education in producing the Framework for Developing a College Alcohol Policy. This Framework provides the basis for individual colleges to form their own policies which reflect the needs and aspirations of their college environment. The evaluation of the college alcohol policy initiative demonstrates that many colleges developed and implemented college alcohol policies with strong commitment from student services staff and student unions officers. Colleges recognised the critical importance of an environmental approach in preventing and reducing alcohol related harm, a key objective of the National Health Promotion Strategy. The CLAN report provides a national profile of the lifestyle habits of students in relation to accidents and injuries, alcohol, diet, drugs, exercise, general health, mental health, sexual health, and smoking.
