The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will convene its 12th Annual Prevention Day on Monday, February 1, 2016, in conjunction with CADCA’s National Leadership Forum.
SAMHSA’s Prevention Day highlights The Power of Prevention! This exciting one-day forum features dynamic speakers and informative training sessions for prevention practitioners, community leaders, researchers, and consumers in the behavioral health field to share SAMHSA’s prevention priorities for the coming year and provide participants with the necessary training, technical assistance, and resources to successfully address these prevention issues.
Share your experiences and information with other SAMHSA grantees and partners, and build your program skills across a variety of prevention topics. Also, learn how to leverage your community’s efforts, tell your prevention story, and showcase the impact of your prevention programming on community health by getting involved in SAMHSA’s 2016 National Prevention Week – Strong as One. Stronger Together. This annual health observance is dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance use and misuse as well as mental health issues.
And finally, participants can check out the CyberCafe to find the wealth of SAMHSA’s multimedia prevention resources addressing topics such as underage drinking, suicide prevention, prescription drug misuse and abuse, and youth marijuana use.
