SAMHSA's 16th Prevention Day
 

Mark your calendars to attend the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 16th Annual Prevention Day! 

This exciting one-day event will convene on Monday, February 3, 2020, in conjunction with CADCA's 30th National Leadership Forum at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Oxon Hill, MD. 

As it provides a forum for the communication and networking between prevention practitioners, community leaders, researchers, and consumers in the behavioral health field, Prevention Day will feature SAMHSA’s leadership to inform on SAMHSA’s prevention priorities for the coming year.  Other dynamic speakers will be featured to discuss evidence-based preventive interventions and findings from the latest developments in the areas of substance abuse prevention, treatment, recovery, and mental illness.

Also, visit SAMHSA’s Prevention Action Center (PAC)!  The PAC provides a wealth of multimedia prevention resources addressing topics such as prescription drug misuse and abuse, underage drinking, youth marijuana use, and suicide prevention.
