About Preventionfocus

Prevention is a proactive approach that keeps healthy people healthy and gives those at higher risk a better chance of avoiding dangerous and unhealthy behaviors. Underage drinking, substance abuse, problem gambling, bullying, obesity, violence, suicide, and a host of related problems can be reduced when the proper prevention strategies are implemented. Preventionfocus puts such strategies to work every day in an effort to stop problems before they start.

We give children, teens, and adults the skills and information they need to make safer and healthier choices. We also work to impact laws, policies, norms and beliefs that make those choices easier and more likely.

Contact us to see how we can make safe and healthy happen for you!
