PUIG-LAGUNES, Ángel Alberto et al. Alcohol consumption in Mexican high school students. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2019, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-9. ISSN 1806-6976.

Alcohol consumption by young people and adolescents is a worldwide phenomenon that has increased in recent years. OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the consumption pattern and the perceptions about alcohol use by people close to the Mexican high school students. METHOD: this is a cross-sectional and quantitative approach, involving 940 students from six bachelors courses in the State of Veracruz, Mexico. Outcomes: prevalence of use was 57.4% in life, 31.5% in the last year, 25.3% in the last month; 7.4% consumed alcohol on a problematic level. Negative perceptions about alcohol consumption were evaluated by fathers and mothers, predominantly among students with low risk consumption. CONCLUSION: alcohol consumption among baccalaureate students is high, especially among men, with an earlier onset and incidence of intoxication. In addition, it is very present among students with problems in parental relationships. The results may support the development of preventive programs in relation to alcohol consumption in school settings.
