The power of using the same consistent language and visual elements adds up to Brand Awareness. Our brand is Prevention and we want everyone in the Commonwealth to recognize our efforts as collaborative and unified.
National Prevention Week is the perfect time to remind your community about substance misuse prevention and mental health. CPA is here to help you host an event to raise awareness of your prevention programs, highlight their importance, and shout out your prevention partners and champions.
Unite Our Prevention Efforts
Take selfies with the free downloadable signs. Live-stream your Prevention Week activities. Make videos sharing your prevention efforts.
Look at what your peer groups are doing on their social media. Like their efforts, posts, reels, stories, and most importantly – Follow Each Other!
Tell Your Prevention Stories.
Try to keep things short, concise and meaningful. And don’t forget to use the three hashtags so we can all find you:
#PreventionHappensHere #PAPrevention and #MyPreventionStory
Share their content to your own pages! Sharing the content of others is how groups get in front of an exponential number of viewers.
We can’t stress this enough. Employ all these ideas as many times a day as possible.
