Bringing down binge drinking

“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 communities throughout the year to inspire action and prevent substance use and mental disorders.

SAMHSA’s next NPW is May 10 through 16, 2020. Each year around this observance, communities and organizations across the country come together to raise awareness about the importance of substance use prevention and positive mental health.

Each year, National Prevention Week includes daily themes to focus on major substance use and mental health topics. The 2020 daily themes are:

Monday, May 11: Preventing Prescription Drug and Opioid Misuse

Tuesday, May 12: Preventing Underage Drinking and Alcohol Misuse

Wednesday, May 13: Preventing Illicit Drug Use and Youth Marijuana Use

Thursday, May 14: Preventing Youth Tobacco Use (E-Cigarettes and Vaping)

Friday, May 15: Preventing Suicide.”
