National Prevention Week (NPW) is an annual observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, mental health and substance use disorders. Each year, SAMHSA honors NPW with daily themes to focus on major substance use and mental health topics. This year, SAMHSA is creating a new way to participate in National Prevention Week (NPW) through #MyPreventionStory. It is a way for us to acknowledge our mental health and substance use prevention experiences. The 2022 daily themes and suggested events/resources are found on our mental health awareness page here.
This year, SAMHSA is also creating a new way to participate in NPW through #MyPreventionStory. It is a way for us to acknowledge our mental health and substance use prevention experiences. Leading up to NPW, SAMHSA will be encouraging individuals and organizations to create and share a prevention story on social media—whether it’s telling how they are helping to prevent substance use or sharing the ways they’re promoting mental health during COVID-19.
