NPW 2024: #MyPreventionStory

This year, SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) urges you to create and share a prevention story on social media — whether it’s telling how you are helping to prevent substance use or sharing the ways you're promoting mental health. Be a part of the national conversation that celebrates prevention by using the hashtag #MyPreventionStory! Learn more on SAMHSA's site.
