The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has developed four, national public health campaigns, three that seek to educate Americans about the symptoms of cancer and how to reduce your risk – Screen for Life: National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign, Bring Your Brave and Inside Knowledge: Get the Facts About Gynecological Cancer and the first-ever paid national tobacco education campaign—Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) which profiles real people who are living with serious long-term health effects from smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. These resources can be used by behavioral health organizations as they seek to increase and/or enhance cancer prevention education and programming for their clients. For the past year, the National Behavioral Health Network has partnered with behavioral health organizations in the delivery of educational sessions based on the CDC’s national public health campaigns.
