Prevention Coalition

We need your voice as St. Clair County forms a new community prevention coalition!

The purpose is to develop a coalition of local stakeholders that will work together to reduce risk factors for youth substance use. Preventing risky behaviors will impact the health, well-being and ultimately the lives of teens and the community around them. Together, we will prioritize substance use issues to tackle and develop a five-year comprehensive, community-owned plan to impact these priorities.

Planning sessions will lead to the development of a strategic plan to guide coalition efforts. We ask you to attend all three sessions. Lunch will be provided. Share with others who might be interested!
