1 THE TRUST SPOTLIGHT E-News February 17, 2015 NEWSLETTER SECTIONS Spotlight News Alaska Funding Opportunities National Funding Opportunities Meetings, Conferences and Trainings Resources New PSA Highlights Lifelong Effects of FASD The Trust developed a new PSA focused on prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. FASD is an umbrella term describing the range of effects that can occur in an individual prenatally exposed to alcohol. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral and/or learning disabilities with lifelong implications. Alaska has the highest rate of FASD in the nation and more than 120 Alaska children are diagnosed with FASD each year. This PSA is the first tool developed in a statewide, multimedia campaign to begin in March. The purpose of this campaign is to provide education about FASD and its lifelong effects and to motivate women to learn about their pregnancy status before consuming alcohol. The intent is to inform, move and motivate residents in an effort to prevent occurrences of FASD in Alaska. ABOUT THE TRUST The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority is a catalyst for change and improvement in the systems that serve Trust beneficiaries, who include people who experience: mental illness developmental disabilities chronic alcoholism and other substance related disorders Alzheimer s disease and related dementia traumatic brain injury that results in permanent brain injury The Trust provides leadership in advocacy, planning, implementing and funding of a comprehensive integrated mental health program. mhtrust.org While there is a high level of knowledge that alcohol use during pregnancy is harmful to an unborn baby, many women receive misinformation about alcohol and pregnancy, including the consequences of alcohol use, safe times to drink during pregnancy and safe amounts or types of alcohol. The campaign will increase knowledge in the following areas: Alcohol use during pregnancy can cause birth defects and brain damage It is best to stop drinking before conception It is safest not to drink any alcohol during pregnancy There is no known safe time or amount to drink during pregnancy
