The Russell Family Fetal Alcohol Disorders Association (rffada) is a national not-for-profit health promotion charity dedicated to prevention and ensuring that individuals living with FASD or at risk of fetal alcohol exposure have access to diagnostic services, post diagnostic multidisciplinary management planning and parent peer support.

RFFADA produced the first prevention video for mainstream Australians. Thanks to the Alaska Mental Health Trust for letting us use their format.
