IS IT TOO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT THE MONTH OF MAY?
Topic: IT'S ALL ABOUT PREVENTION
If you visit https://www.samhsa.gov/prevention-week/about  you will learn that SAMHSA already is planning  for the May 13th to May 19th prevention week. It takes time to involve communities, schools, individuals (MAYBE YOU) and your local newspapers, radio and TV stations. Get involved. Want to write for your local newspaper? Ask them if you can do an article? See if your local TV or radio station has program where you can talk about this. Did you know that teens and full-time college students most often use substances for the first time during June or July, according to SAMHSA National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) data on adolescents – 2012 (PDF | 704 KB) and NSDUH data on full-time college students – 2015 (PDF | 1.2 MB). The timing of National Prevention Week provides an opportunity for schools and organizations to host prevention-themed events before the school year ends, raising awareness about this important issue among students and their families. Reach out to SAMHSA. Ask questions. Help yourself to stay healthy.
