What is FASD Awareness Day?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day originated in Canada with the first FASD Day taking place on 9th September 1999. This date was chosen as it was the 9th day of the 9th month of the year, to represent the 9 months of pregnancy and raise awareness of the importance of having an alcohol-free pregnancy for the full nine months Since then the campaign has gathered global recognition with many countries now taking part in activities to raise awareness of FASD.
FASD Hear Me
Our theme in 2022 was ‘FASD Hear Me’ and if you have been following our social media you will have noticed our #FASDHearMe hashtag over the past few months. We know that the voice of the individual with FASD, their parents and carers should be paramount when raising awareness and seeking change in the supports available.
This September, we have lots of exciting things planned, and you can help us by taking part.
