Resources: The Forward Together Campaign


The Forward Together campaign launched!

Forward Together (previously Healthy Youth Campaign) is an ad campaign for parents, trusted adults, and youth ages 12-17. It’s designed to help young people feel more connected - to peers, parents, and other trusted adults. Research shows that youth who are connected are less likely to smoke, drink, vape, use marijuana, and have feelings of depression.

Forward Together Campaign Background

Historically, Colorado Departments of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Human Services (CDHS) have created separate youth prevention campaigns that are substance-specific. We decided to streamline our youth prevention media campaign efforts and funding sources to create one campaign about connectedness to address multiple health outcomes.
