National Prevention Week
National Prevention Week is an annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, mental and/or substance use disorders. In 2018, it was celebrated from May 13-19.
In observance of National Prevention Week, the Youth Advisory Committee of the Behavioral Health Alliance of Grundy County worked with WJDK/WCSJ Radio to develop radio PSAs about the importance of parents talking to teens about alcohol. Youth related how and why to have these conversations.
Many thanks to the Criminal Justice II students, Mr. Dite, and Lee Ann Oliver for their collaboration and efforts. Special thanks to the Southwest Coalition for Substance Use Issues for providing grant funding that assisted with broadcast costs!
