National Prevention Week is just around the corner. This annual health observance is dedicated to increasing public awareness and action around substance misuse and mental health issues. From May 14-20, communities around the country will celebrate the power of prevention with the theme Making Each Day Count.
Since February, excitement for National Prevention Week 2017 has been building, with people rallying around the #PreventionPower campaign. They’ve shared inspiring social media posts about people living and supporting wellness.
At SAMHSA, we’re Making Each Day Count by focusing on the following prevention topics during National Prevention Week.
