National Prevention Week

Planning for National Prevention Week? Not sure how to involve your Youth Advisory Council? Trying to figure out what activities you want to include? The answers to these and other questions can be found when you take our training, Planning for National Prevention Week. 


This online training has been recently updated from a 2019 webinar to our online self-study platform. The training includes everything you would like to know about the May 9-15, 2021 observance. SAMHSA holds National Prevention Week in May to give schools, communities, and prevention professionals time to re-focus on prevention and raise awareness about this issue before summer. 


Visit the NPW website to utilize the promotional materials, planning toolkit, and join the prevention challenge. If you would like additional inspiration, check out the Events & Activities section where you can learn about community events that will be held around the country.
