National Prevention Week

National Prevention Week is a public education platform showcasing the work of communities and organizations across the country that are preventing substance use and promoting positive mental health.

This year, National Prevention Week took place from May 12-18, 2024! Thank you to everyone who helped make National Prevention Week 2024 a success by joining SAMHSA in celebrating new prevention initiatives, planning events in your community, sharing your #MyPreventionStory, and more! Hear from grantees and coalition members as they share their stories and highlight the power of the prevention community in our National Prevention Week 2024 Community Showcase video.

We recognize that prevention happens every day, not just during the second week of May. As such, National Prevention Week is shifting to celebrate and promote your year-round prevention initiatives. SAMHSA created a new, ongoing virtual series to showcase, elevate, and celebrate the important prevention ideas, events, news, and activities that impact communities across the country. Throughout the year, the series will spotlight prevention organizations that are creating positive social impact, fostering collaboration, and effectively responding to the changing substance use landscape. Ultimately, enhancing the health and well-being of our communities.
