In advance of National Prevention Week 2014, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has launched a new series of Spanish-language Web pages to engage Latinos in raising awareness for mental health and substance abuse issues, according to a SAMHSA press release.

National Prevention Week will take place May 18 to 24 in communities across the country. This year’s theme is “Our Lives. Our Health. Our Future.”  

Latinos who are interested in getting involved can check out SAMHSA’s new cache of Spanish resources over the next month, including promotional materials, web badges, Spanish-language videos and instructions for participating in the organization’s “Yo Elijo” (“I Choose”) Project.
