MJCPC partnered with MVSU to recognize Alcohol Awareness Month.  The idea was to give the students of MVSU information on DUI prevention.  This effort was set into place in order to help students discuss about DUI and/or other drugs that some could be dealing with.  The MVSU Counseling Services was available also, to inform students of their services if anyone needs their services.

In a bid to prevent alcohol-related incidents, Jack son State University and Metro Jackson Community Prevention Coalition, (MJCPC) is encouraging people to drink sensibly, in moderation and know their own limits (under 21 =N/A – over 21 =.08%) It’s a major awareness initiative led by MS Office of Highway Safety, JSU/MJCPC and its partners to raise awareness of the problems created through binge drinking at parties or holiday events. New Year's day and sports related events traditionally see an increase in this type of problem because it is when people sometimes have ‘one too many’ during the festivities.

National Kick Butts Day is Wednesday, March 18, 2015.  It is sponsored by JSU Metro Jackson Community Prevention Coalition and Innovative Behavioral Services, Inc. 

 Every day in the United States, nearly 4,000 kids try their first cigarette.  Nicotine is an extremely addictive component, as addictive as heroin or cocaine.  Every 72 seconds in the U.S., someone dies from tobacco consumption.  The tobacco sector addicts more than 1,000 youth every day.

* Across the world, every 6.4 seconds one person loses his life due to tobacco use.

* Big Tobacco spends nearly 13.3 billion per year on advertising and marketing of tobacco.

* People who intake 8 -10 chews per day of spit tobacco are consuming the same quantity of nicotine as a smoker who smokes 30 – 40 cigarettes a day.
