Public Awareness Campaign
The “Know when to say when” campaign challenges the community to consider the amount of alcohol they consume, by placing the spotlight on behaviour that our society erroneously accepts as 'normal' when people drink too much.
The National Alcohol Campaign was launched in 2000 to reduce alcohol-related harm amongst young Australians. Together with a range of education, policy and regulatory initiatives the National Alcohol Campaign contributed to the National Alcohol Strategic Plan. The focus of the Campaign is on young people's drinking (primarily 15 to 17 years old) and associated information and support for parents. The aim of the campaign is to assist all sections of the community, in particular young people, to develop understanding, attitudes and behaviour enabling them to minimise, and if possible avoid alcohol-related harm
The National Drug Strategy, a cooperative venture between Australian, state and territory governments and the non-government sector, is aimed at improving health, social and economic outcomes for Australians by preventing the uptake of harmful drug use and reducing the harmful effects of licit and illicit drugs in our society.

The Australian Government’s National Drugs Campaign aims to help young people and parents understand the harmful effects and consequences of drug use.
The National Tobacco Campaign 2011 aims to contribute to a reduction in the prevalence of adult daily smoking from 16.6 percent currently, to 10 per cent or less by 2018. To achieve this, several marketing activities combine to engage with current smokers to encourage them to make a quit attempt, support current quitters in making their quit attempt and help them reduce their chance of relapse.
