Support National Prevention Week, May 12‒18, 2013. Your voice. Your choice. Make a difference.

Help Support Prevention in Your Community

National Prevention Week 2013 will take place May 12–18, 2013. This year’s theme emphasizes that the prevention of substance abuse and promotion of mental health starts with the choices each of us makes in our own life. Through our choices, we can set an example of health and well-being for others. With our voices—whether spoken or written—we can raise awareness of behavioral health issues and help create healthier and safer communities.

You can plan and host your own events, participate in the “I Choose” project, or take the “Prevention Pledge” to show your support and help raise awareness about behavioral health issues.
