Website logs student drinking habits

E-Health Europe

Health researchers at the University of Leeds have developed a website that encourages students to keep track of their drinking.

Unitcheck encourages young people to check how many units they are consuming, how this affects their health, and how their drinking compares with that of their peers.

You can see the website this story is about here. Looking at the FAQ it’s clear that the site isn’t aimed at those under 18, but they do say elsewhere:

A new project is about to be launched which will allow Leeds Sixth form students access to Unitcheck. If you are interested in finding out further information please contact the Unitcheck team (unitcheck@leeds.ac.uk)
