NAADAC is excited to partner with the Substance and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for the 2018 National Prevention Week (NPW) taking place from May 13-19, 2018.
Everyone can take part in NPW by planning events around one or all of the NPW topics. To do so, submit your event details on the NPW Community Events page to share your NPW event with others.
Another way to get involved is by joining the National Prevention Week movement on social media by participating in this year's NPW Prevention Challenge, Dear Future Me. Here's how to participate:
Write a letter or draw a picture about the choices you’re making to live a healthy, happy life.
Take a picture of your letter or record a video of yourself reading your letter.
Share it on social media using the hashtag #DearFutureMe and #NPW2018.
Tag a few friends so they can participate and add their Dear Future Me letter to the NPW conversation.
Share any or all of the Dear Future Me videos on social media to encourage others to participate as well.
The NPW 2018 theme is “Action Today. Healthier Tomorrow.” This theme reminds us that simple, daily acts of prevention, like helping a friend make positive choices or supporting a family member in need, can lead to healthier lives for each of us today, and stronger, happier communities tomorrow.
