We treat the whole person and help uncover the life experiences, personal relationships, wellness habits, and external influences that led to substance use and mental health conditions in the first place.
From there, we educate people about holistic wellness tools like fitness, nutrition, sleep hygiene, and self-care habits aimed at prevention, education, and skills that enhance and support recovery.
Goals of National Prevention Week
The purpose of National Prevention Week (NPW) is not only to talk about prevention but also to educate the public and design local strategies that promote mental health awareness and help deter and reduce substance use disorder within our communities.
There are three primary goals of NPW:
- Involve communities in raising awareness of substance use and mental health issues and in implementing prevention strategies, and showcasing the effectiveness of evidence-based prevention programs;
- Foster partnerships and collaborations with federal agencies and national organizations dedicated to improving public health; and
- Promote and disseminate quality substance use prevention and mental health promotion resources and publications.
