It’s almost time to celebrate all the prevention initiatives that take place all year long, each and every day, and the possibilities they open up with National Prevention Week! Created by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), to help communities and organizations across the country raise awareness about substance misuse, prevention, and mental health by participating in a public education campaign. The goal is to help make a positive impact and change the course of lives around the nation!

This year National Prevention Week takes place from May 7–13, 2023! This year SAMHSA will once again celebrate stories of prevention, intervention, and prevention partners that help make it all happen! They will also be providing digital interactive prevention resources and activities to help get all involved near or far. Hear success stories from their webinar called, “Communities Talk to Prevent Alcohol and Other Drug Misuse!
