Drug and Alcohol Information and Resilience Skills

Posted on 12th Aug 2016

Drug and Alcohol Information and Resilience Skills (DAIR) is a Youth Solutions health education program for young people aged 14 – 16. The program also engages with parents, carers and the wider school community.

Through DAIR, young people take part in series of workshops which focus on knowledge and skill development to reduce alcohol and other drug related harm.

Established in 2012, the program is generally delivered over six weeks.

In in addition to reducing alcohol and drug related harms, DAIR aims to improve mental health, resilience and positive coping strategies. It also aims to help young people to develop effective communication skills and provide young people with access to and skills for seeking help and support.

The DAIR project is funded by NSW Health and South Western Sydney Local Health District.


School Counsellor, Teacher and Registered Psychologist Sally Willmott is a supporter of Youth Solutions and the DAIR Program, having witnessed the program’s results in her school community.

Thank you to Sally for sharing her thoughts on Youth Solutions’ work and the DAIR program.
