Mississippi Department of Health Awards Contract to CATCH My Breath

February 8, 2021

We are thrilled to announce that CATCH My Breath, CATCH’s evidence-based youth nicotine vaping prevention program, recently received a $100,000 youth vaping prevention services contract from the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH).

Through this award, MSDH joins California, Indiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and others in selecting CATCH My Breath to lead their youth vaping prevention efforts.

CATCH My Breath’s partnership with MSDH encompasses a coordinated spring campaign and Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action event on April 1, 2021 to educate Mississippi youth about the dangers of vaping and empower them to make a difference in the vaping prevention movement.

To kick-off this initiative, CATCH My Breath is looking for one Mississippi student (grades 5-12) to join our Youth Advisory Board of Directors. Applications are open now and close at 5:00pm CST on February 12th.
