Girls who couldn’t handle their alcohol where seen to be “acting dramatic and would start crying” and for boys this was mostly related to getting into fights.• more of a stigma attached to alcohol+drugs services- better to get messages from ‘somebody who has been through it’ and not be judged: – Even if I thought I had a problem with alcohol, I don’t think I would go, I wouldn’t like to admit it,• Asset mapping/community member as advocates
