Participating is easy – take a photograph of yourself holding a sign with your personal message about why substance abuse prevention or mental health is important to you. For example, you could write "I choose prevention because I want to be healthy and happy." Or you could include "I choose treatment…" or another "I choose" statement, such as "I choose not to give up because things do get better."
Send your photo to NewMedia@samhsa.hhs.gov. In the email, also include:
- Name(s) of people in the photo
- Organization (if applicable)
- State or territory
- ZIP code
- The "I Choose" message displayed in the photo.
After receiving your submission, SAMHSA will review and post your photo to the "I Choose" photo gallery*
