NPW 2020 Prevention Challenge

Tell Us Where You Practice Prevention!

As part of SAMHSA’s National Prevention Week (NPW) 2020, we will be participating in the NPW 2020 Prevention Challenge: Prevention Happens Here. We hope you will join in the challenge too! Participation is easy, and you can do it from your home! That’s right, this challenge takes place on social media. Here’s how:

  1. Download and fill out your own #PreventionHappensHere sign to tell us where you practice prevention.
  2. Then, take a photo or video of yourself with your sign and post it to social media—Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or Snapchat—using the #PreventionHappensHere and #NPW2020 hashtags.
  3. Be sure to geotag your post, so we map all your posts! Lastly, tag your coworkers and friends to post their own sign!
