SAMHSA’s National Prevention Week (NPW) is a public education platform that promotes prevention year-round through providing ideas, capacity-building, tools, and resources to help individuals and communities make substance use prevention happen every day.
NPW culminates in May by recognizing the important work that communities have done throughout the year to inspire action and prevent substance use and mental disorders.
Each day this week, SAMHSA will focus on a specific health theme related to prevention. SAMHSA provides free publications, tip sheets, and resource centers for each of the 2020 daily themes to educate and discuss in your community.
National Prevention Week (NPW) in May is the perfect time to remind your community about substance misuse prevention and mental health before summer begins.
