SAMHSA's 14th Annual Prevention Day
The Power of Prevention: Applying the Past, Navigating the Future
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will convene its 14th Annual Prevention Day on Monday, February 5, 2018, in conjunction with CADCA’s 28th 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 2018 National Prevention Week – “Action Today. Healthier Tomorrow” This annual health observance is dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around substance use disorders as well as issues related to mental health. Participants can check out the Cyber Cafe 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.
