Perspective is Everything
Sometimes it's easy to focus on the negative. We are bombarded with negative information every day. News outlets, social media, and texts can be overwhelmingly negative. Sometimes the good gets obscured through the message.
In 2016, the first Stand With Me, Be Drug Free campaign was launched. This is a positive messaging campaign that sprouted from the idea of one amazing volunteer who suggested we should flip our standard prevention messaging around on end.
What does that mean? If 16% of Yavapai County youth use drugs regularly, then that means 84% don't use drugs. We decided to celebrate that majority number. And that's how Stand With Me, Be Drug Free Week was born.
This year looks different in a lot of ways, but there's still a lot of good in our world. Especially if we are willing to change our perspective.
Join us Saturday, March 27th at 10:00 am for our 5th annual Walk With Me, Be Drug Free event at Mortimer Farms in Dewey. It's free fun for the entire family!
