NEW! Pilot Podcast Series: Communities Talk about Prevention
Tune into SAMHSA’s new pilot podcast series to learn how community-based organizations and institutions of higher education are advancing substance use prevention in their own communities! In each episode of Communities Talk About Prevention, you'll learn how organizations have coordinated local events and activities to support substance use prevention; how they have overcome unique challenges; and how they have measured success. Most importantly, guests will share best practices, which we hope will inspire you to participate in prevention in your own community.
This pilot podcast series features participants from SAMHSA’s national Communities Talk initiative. Since 2006, thousands of Communities Talk events and activities held across the country have helped increase public awareness of and action around the prevention of substance use and misuse, covering topics such as underage drinking, vaping, marijuana, opioids, methamphetamine, suicide, mental health, and more.
