Start With Hope
The National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Ad Council and Shatterproof, is inspiring millions to “Start With Hope” in a national public service advertisement (PSA) campaign. This vital new effort aims to deliver a message of hope to those living with substance use disorders (SUDs), as well as those at risk of developing a SUD, with a focus on reaching Black and Hispanic/Latinx populations, empowering them to start their journeys to wellbeing and recovery by learning about harm reduction strategies and treatment resources.
Start With Hope features real people sharing their stories about how they changed their relationship with substances and are on their continued journey towards recovery.
This project is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $2,000,000 with 100% funded by CDC/HHS.
