Mark your calendars! SAMHSA’s next National Prevention Week will be from May 14 to 20, 2017. Each year around this observance, communities and organizations across the country come together to raise awareness about the importance of substance use prevention and positive mental health. Organizations and coalitions also use this time to tell their success stories about the impact that prevention efforts have had in their communities.
NBC star of Chicago Med and NPW 2016 Ambassador, Torrey DeVitto helps in supporting this year’s theme—Strong as One, Stronger Together—recognizing that one person can make a positive difference in their community, but when we all unite together we can achieve even more. Watch "Strong as One, Stronger Together" (video: one minute).
