National Prevention Week is a campaign launched by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health in the United States.

The purpose of National Prevention week is to:

  • involve communities in raising awareness of substance misuse and mental health issues by implementing prevention strategies and showcasing the effectiveness of evidence-based programs
  • foster partnerships and collaborations with federal agencies and national organizations dedicated to improving public health
  • promote and disseminate quality substance use prevention and mental health promotion resources and publications

At Mercer Council, we deeply understand the need for support for our communities and utilize evidence-based practices in all of our programming. We believe that we are stronger together, and that it is only together that we can work to encourage and envision healthy, safe and responsible communities.

From the SAMHSA website:

"National Prevention Week is about uniting SAMHSA with dedicated individuals, communities, and organizations planning prevention initiatives and using our platform to showcase this ongoing work. We are stronger when we work together and are always looking for opportunities to partner with those on the frontlines of prevention to see where we can elevate future efforts."
