Mental Health Awareness – An Introduction to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is an umbrella term used to describe a range of lifelong disabilities that can occur as a result of a fetus being exposed to alcohol during pregnancy.

The course introduces you to what FASD is, how it affects someone at different stages of life and the path to diagnosis.


Who is this course for?

You could be a parent-to-be, the partner of a parent-to-be, a friend of a parent-to-be, a parent or carer of a person with FASD, a healthcare professional wanting to learn a little more about FASD, or someone who wants to learn about this important subject.

We estimate the course will take about 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete.


  • There is also a companion e-Magazine on FASD which focuses on lived experience journeys to FASD diagnosis, navigating health and social care support systems, schools, and education.
  • There are also companion self-help resources on FASD.
