National Prevention Week takes place May 17th through May 23rd. According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), it is a “supported annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues”.
The theme for 2015 is “The Voice of One, the Power of All.” (YouTube Link about the 2015 theme- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWqd05t5LFs )
During the course of the week, we will be updating the website with various prevention themes aimed at raising awareness and helping the community make informed decisions about their health. For more information visit the SAMHSA website at: www.samhsa.gov/prevention-week.
