PartySafe was a peer education campaign aimed at decreasing health risks including HIV that are associated with binge drinking. It was active under this title from May 2013 to May 2016. PartySafe was a campaign sponsored by the Bienestar Coalition with grant funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Now, many of the same services and programs begun by PartySafe are being carried out through the SHARE Initiative.
In Spanish, the word bienestar means wellness or well-being. Our coalition worked to improve the well-being of campus and community members through more effective communication, programs and services about the health and safety risks of alcohol and substance abuse.
