Tip of the Week

Shifting from the Awareness Month to the Prevention Year

All of us are more than familiar with the awareness month paradigm – each cause has a month and each month has many causes. Many schools and campuses have embraced awareness month popularity, but to what effect?  Though well-intentioned, awareness months limit our notion of how and when to address critical health and safety issues. They tend to confine programming to 30-day windows, and foster programming at times that do not always gel well with school and campus calendars. They place the emphasis on raising awareness rather than improving prevention. SCOPE believes that prevention practitioners should break out of the awareness month mentality and instead look to a yearlong infusion of a planned prevention curriculum.

SCOPE Online Prevention Clearinghouse

SCOPE has created a clearinghouse of online prevention programs for Alcohol and Other Drugs, Bystander Intervention and Sexual Violence. Inclusion in the clearinghouse does not constitute endorsement by SCOPE.
