SAMHSA's 16th Prevention Day

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) will convene it's 16th Annual Prevention Day on Monday, February 3, 2020, in conjunction with CADCA's 30th National Leadership Forum. 
 
This exciting one-day event 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 2020 National Prevention Week – “Prevention Happens Here.” National Prevention Week (NPW) is a public education platform that promotes prevention year-round through providing ideas, capacity building tools, and resources to help individuals and communities make substance use prevention happen every day. NPW culminates in May recognizing the important work that has been done in throughout the year to inspire action and prevent substance use and mental disorders. Participants can check out the Prevention Action Center to find a wealth of SAMHSA’s multimedia prevention resources addressing topics such as prescription drug misuse and abuse, underage drinking, youth marijuana use, and suicide prevention.
