Subject: Resolution – Recognizing May 15-21, 2016 as “National Prevention Week” in Pennsylvania
In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution recognizing May 15-21, 2016 as “National Prevention Week” in Pennsylvania.

Promoted annually by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), National Prevention Week is a health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of and action around substance abuse and mental health issues. The theme for this year is “Strong As One. Stronger Together.”

According to SAMHSA, National Prevention Week involves local communities, fosters partnerships with federal agencies and national organizations, and promotes quality resource sharing to raise awareness of behavioral and public health issues. In order to achieve these goals, community organizations across the country host health fairs, block parties, educational assemblies, town hall meetings, memorial walks, social media campaigns, outdoor events, and more during National Prevention Week.

Across this great Commonwealth, we have all seen the impact that substance abuse and mental health issues have had on families and communities. Please consider joining me in raising awareness to these important issues by recognizing May 15-21, 2016 as “National Prevention Week” in Pennsylvania.
