National Prevention Week: May 15-21

SAMHSA’s fifth annual National Prevention Week, “Strong As One. Stronger Together,” May 15-21, 2016, is dedicated to increasing public awareness and prevention of mental and/or substance use disorders. During National Prevention Week, community organizations across the country host health fairs, educational assemblies, town hall meetings, memorial walks, social media campaigns, outdoor events, and more. This year’s theme - Strong as One, Stronger Together -recognizes that one person can make a positive difference in their community, but when we all unite together we can achieve even more. SAMHSA is pleased to announce that Torrey DeVitto, who stars as an ER pediatrician in the NBC drama “Chicago Med,” serves as this year’s National Prevention Week Ambassador.
