Prevention: What is it, really?
In school and community settings, programs, curricula and services are often labeled “prevention,” though they may not meet the goal of preventing substance use and mental disorders. Learn about the three prevention populations, the six strategies utilized to meet prevention goals, and why school districts and communities should be selective about which prevention services they choose and who delivers those services.
Training participants will be better equipped to:
1. Define the six strategies utilized to meet prevention goals.
2. Distinguish between prevention populations based on risk.
3. Increase capacity to critically vet prevention services offered to school districts and within communities.
