Did you hear? Our social media FASD prevention and awareness campaign is now launched! It's the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada.
fasdNL has developed a FASD prevention and awareness campaign in an effort to increase support and increase dialogue surrounding individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
Our Atlantic-wide campaign addresses FASD prevention and awareness with an approach that is strength-based and supported by evidence. We at fasdNL recognize the stigma that is attached to fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. A goal of this campaign is to address the stigma associated with FASD by promoting public awareness and by delivering accurate and consistent information along with re-framing the issue to include partners, friends, and family members. In doing so, we aim to highlight the ways we can all support healthy pregnancies rather than placing the burden on women alone.
fasdNL is leading a three-year FASD prevention, awareness, and training collaborative action project in Atlantic Canada. You can participate by sharing our social media (@fasdNL) campaign images on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

FASD 101 and the Justice System is a free half-day training designed for justice professionals and community organizations who may work adjacent to or directly with justice-involved individuals impacted by fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). This training aims to increase understanding of FASD and its intersections with the justice system as well as deliver promising interventions for justice-involved individuals with FASD.
This interactive evidence-based training will address current FASD diagnostic information, stigma and shame associated with the disorder, as well as various interventions and strategies for a strength-based and person-centered approach.
