More Than Ever Before

More Than Ever Before

#moreThanEverBefore Focus on your well-being and caring for those you love.

On March 27th, 2020, in response to COVID 19 pandemic, PREVENTS launched a national public health campaign on Facebook using the hashtag #MoreThanEverBefore. The goal of the campaign was to help all Americans – including those most vulnerable and those who may be struggling – as we deal with the stress and anxiety caused by the pandemic. The resources on this page were developed as part of this campaign.
