Smarter than Smoking
This site is for people working in schools, communities and other youth settings who would like information and resources to help prevent young people in Western Australia (WA) from starting to smoke.
The information and resources have been provided by Smarter than Smoking, a project which aims to prevent the uptake of smoking among 10 to 15-year-olds in WA. The project is funded by Healthway and implemented by the Heart Foundation.
Almost 9,000 young people in WA smoke regularly. If they continue to smoke, 1 in 2 will eventually die due to their smoking. Support to prevent young people from starting to smoke, and encouraging those who smoke to stop, is vital.
