October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month
It is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month and we are assisting the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) in getting the word out about the dangers of drug use on academic achievement.  The theme for Prevention Month is “Prevent. Achieve. Succeed.”  ONDCP has posted a blog on their website to provide information on activities including a Twitter chat.
​​October is National Bullying Prevention Month
The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention (FPBP) have released a variety of resources aimed at informing youth, those who work with youth, members of the media, parents, and schools. These resources can be found at A listing of activities can be found at blog.
Check out FPBP hashtag #StopBullying365 to collect stories of how individuals and communities are taking action in bullying prevention.
With all of these new resources and attention, it’s a great time to consider how you can help raise awareness about bullying and take action to stop it. Teens can find inspiration by visiting our Tumblr site. Tell us what you are going to do by engaging on Facebook and Twitter using #StopBullying365.
