SAMHSA's National Prevention Week May 10-16, 2020


InnerAct Alliance is honored to partner with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to celebrate National Prevention Week (NPW) from May 10-16, 2020, an annual health observance to increase public awareness and action for substance abuse prevention and promote positive mental health. NPW is organized around some of the following theme days with resources and activities to focus attention on substances that threaten the health of our communities:

Monday: Preventing Prescription Drug & Opioid Misuse

Tuesday: Preventing Underage Drinking & Alcohol Misuse

 Wednesday: Preventing Illicit Drug Use & Youth Marijuana Use

Thursday: Preventing Youth Tobacco Use (E-cigarettes & Vaping)

 Friday: Preventing Suicide

With families spending more time at home to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this is an opportune time for parents to engage in meaningful discussion with their children to share fact-based information about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Knowledge can help youngsters to make informed decisions and help families stay healthy and substance-free.
