To kick off National Prevention Week the coalition hosted Rockville ROCKS! on May 12th. National Prevention Week is an annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, mental and/or substance use disorders. The block party was in an effort to provide the community in which we serve a fun, free event while also providing them with helpful resources.
We had many fun activities including:
face painting • dental van • child safety information • crafts • free throw contest • car seat demonstration • Hidden in Plain Sight demonstration • raffles • bounce house • food trucks • community resources
