National Prevention Week is a SAMHSA-supported annual health observance, dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues. “In the past National Prevention Week has typically been geared towards adults. However, too often we tend to forget about the young adolescents who are facing the same issues,” says Ron Moore, MSW, Nevada Homes for Youth Executive Director. “Nevada Homes for Youth’s mission is to bring, and keep, teen substance abuse in the forefront.”
