Resources for Partners
The Engaging Youth Expertise (EYE) for Prevention campaign focuses on mental/behavioral health and substance misuse prevention for young people aged 13-25 in the Denver Metro Area. Built by youth who can directly relate to this struggle, this campaign is focused on using a holistic and trauma-informed lens to better understand what young people in our community are facing so, together, we can come up with creative and powerful ways to make a difference.
If you or your organization would like to join us in our mission to authentically engage young people throughout Denver and Colorado, we have tools and information to help get you started. Below, you’ll find color and style guides, ways to share our message on social media, downloadable templates, and more.

We’re excited to partner with The Engaging Youth Expertise (EYE) for Prevention campaign in their effort to engage young people throughout Denver and Colorado. This campaign is focused on mental and behavioral health and substance misuse prevention for young people aged 13-25 in the Denver Metro Area.
It’s important for these young people to know that they are not alone in their struggles, that they can choose themselves over using, and that there are other ways to cope with the right resources. Our goal is to show them that they can find happiness, self-love, and support when they start to see their own substance over their substance use.
