The aim of prevention services is to promote strengths, reduce the influence of risk factors, and support an individual’s own sense of competency. In this way, one’s skills and abilities are improved, attitudes are changed, and behavior is enhanced, thereby reducing the incidence of emotional and behavioral disorders, substance abuse and violence.
Prevention Specialists are available to community groups to speak on prevention-related topics and provide information associated with healthy youth development.
