Alcohol can make mental health conditions worse especially if its your main coping strategy. Alcohol can contribute to developing a mental health condition as it disrupts the balance of chemicals in the brain. For example serotonin which helps regulate mood. Alcohol can be used to relax but is also addictive and can lead to dependency. Alcohol creates stress rather than reducing it. Heavy drinking is associated with impulsivity and aggression which are strongly implicated in suicidal behaviour. Through Sober October, you have an opportunity to encourage safer drinking habits.
