Violence is the damaging and destructive use of force. Violence is often used to assert power over individuals. Research indicates that there is a strong link between alcohol and violence affecting young people.
If anyone you know is experiencing violence of any type, you should talk to someone you trust about the situation. If you are a student you could talk to your teacher, school guidance officer or school based youth health nurse or call Kids Help Line on 1800 551 800.
The One Punch Can Kill campaign is aimed at preventing senseless violence among young people, and about stopping them from making split-second decisions that could ruin their lives or the lives of others.
It targets 'Generation Y' using modern media and technology, and informs today's youth that acts of violence can have very serious and damaging consequences.
Information regarding the campaign is available on the One Punch Can Kill website .
