May 12-18 is National Prevention Week and #ACelebrationOfPossibility

As National Prevention Week takes place, it is important to reflect on its significance. This week is a way to raise awareness in communities about the importance of positive mental health and substance use prevention. The reality is suicide and mental health rates have been steadily increasing in parts of the world, showing the urgent need for measures to address this ongoing crisis.

A few key points to consider during National Prevention Week are emphasizing that it is okay to not be okay, recognizing the warning signs of struggling individuals, promoting helpful resources, and advocating for positive change in mental health and substance use prevention. Remember, you are not alone, and help is available.

Throughout this week, Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services' social media pages will showcase some of our award-winning Prevention staff along with their comments on the importance of what they do and why they continue to do it. #NationalPreventionWeek
