SPORT Alcohol/Drug Prevention Plus Wellness Media Campaign
Media campaigns are an important and efficient way to deliver substance use prevention, health and safety messages to youth, parents, and communities. They are also a great way to get youth involved in tailoring, delivering and evaluating public health programs.
The ready-to-implement SPORT Alcohol/Drug Prevention Plus Wellness Media Campaign was designed to correct myths, misconceptions, and norms about alcohol use, increase awareness of alcohol harm, media influences, provide positive youth and adult role models, enhance positive self-identity, increase youth self-regulation skills to set healthy behavior goals, and develop protective wellness lifestyles.
The content for the campaign was adapted from the evidence-based SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness motivational program for youth and includes information from essential evidence-informed sources, e.g., CDC.
